Two of Phoenix’s federally coordinated coronavirus blitz testing sites are seeing shorter waits times despite the state’s push to increase testing.
Testing sites at Maryvale High School and South Mountain Park are seeing wait times as short as 30 minutes, according to Phoenix Fire Department Captain Rob McDade.
Both locations are able to process more than a thousand tests a day with results coming back from a California lab in as little as 24 to 48 hours. And there are still plenty of available appointments each day, according to McDade.
The blitz testing sites will run through July 28 and are operating from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day.
