152,000 take-home rapid COVID tests distributed by Miami-Dade County

Miami, Florida – Daniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade Mayor says the county has distributed nearly 152,000 take-home rapid COVID tests.
“I’m extremely proud of our County team’s efforts distributing 152,000 tests at our libraries in two days to meet the surge in demand for COVID-19 testing and keep our community safe,” said Mayor Cava.
The county started giving out kits on Christmas Eve at five library locations, in an effort to combat the highly-contagious omicron variant. The distributions continued on Monday at 27 library locations.
The distribution program was a collaboration between Miami-Dade Public Library System, Miami-Dade Police Department, and the Miami-Dade Emergency Operations Center.
Cava added that “this week we’ll continue stepping up to serve residents by expanding hours and adding testing sites across the County.”
