DORAL, FL – COVID-19 affects everyone equally regardless of social status, age, race, economic capacity or gender. It even hits senior citizens and people with disabilities. The first ones can be at a greater danger when not treated on time.
The real problem is some of them are unable to leave home even when they strongly suspect of being sick. Taking all this into consideration, Miami-Dade County will start a new at-home coronavirus testing on Tuesday aimed for the elderly and disabled adults.
This new at-home testing program was announced over the weekend by the county’s Mayor, Carlos Giménez, and it will be beneficial for county residents, except those who live in the City of Miami since that location already started its own at-home testing program in March.
The tests are free and will be performed by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units, as reported by CBS Miami.
Appointments can be made starting Monday through the hotline number at 305-499-8767.
