Any homeless person who would like to be tested for COVID-19 can come to the First Step Shelter located off International Speedway Blvd., in Daytona Beach from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m at the Main Entrance.


Testing is provided by the Volusia County Health Department, and results will be available approximately 4 days after being tested. The shelter has 150 swab kits, and the test will be administered by Nurses.


No residents of the shelter have tested positive for the virus, so far.


The shelter has also begun taking referrals for New Intakes again. Referrals will only be accepted from Social Service Organizations; Places of Worship; Hospitals; and Law Enforcement Agencies.
