Health Care spokesperson Robin Kish announced, in a press release, that the drive-through lane at C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic at Lakeside Medical Center can handle up to 150 patients a day. For asymptomatic patients, she recommends using just the drive-through option, cautioning the risk of contracting COVID-19 in waiting areas.

People without cars in the Glades communities can use the Palm Tran bus service, which stops in front of the hospital.
