Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation staff continues to make a difference in any way they can during these unprecedented times.

Drive through COVID-19 testing began on April 7th at South County Civic Center, and PBC Parks staff were among those assisting with setup and other tasks; staff in Recreation Services, Park Operations, Special Facilities, and Finance & Support Services stepped up to help make the testing site a reality. They prepared the site, made the facility available, provided access to other Departments, made a considerable number of signs, coordinated custodial services for staff restrooms, and activated the Emergency Operating Area staff through the EDRP program to provide logistical and operational assistance to the on-site Incident Command. Staff participated in a dry run to make sure the traffic flow was functioning well prior to it’s start.
