People who live and work in South Beach stopped by police headquarters Tuesday to get tested for the Zika virus.
The Florida Department of Health is testing people for free in the community room of the Miami Beach Police Department, 1100 Washington Ave., from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. On Wednesday, testing will continue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again from 5 to 7 p.m.
The test is available to anyone who works or lives in the area, not just pregnant women. Those wanting to get tested must bring a picture ID to prove they live and/or work in the zone where mosquitoes are actively spreading Zika. The Miami Beach zone stretches from Eighth to 28th streets, from the ocean to Biscayne Bay.
