| 12/27/2021

 

In the continued effort to meet the rapid rise in demand for COVID testing and keep our community safe through the holidays, Miami Dade County will expand its offering of free take home rapid test kits at Miami-Dade County Public Libraries to 27 library locations on Monday, December 27. Residents can pick up a take home rapid test beginning at 9:30 a.m. while supplies last. There is a limit of up to three tests per household.

“As we tackle the spread of Omicron and the recent surge in demand for COVID testing, Miami-Dade County is doing everything we can to make testing as accessible as possible across our community – including by distributing free take home rapid test kits to residents,” said Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “We’re proud that we distributed over 12,000 tests at our libraries on Christmas Eve and that we’re expanding the available supply and opening more locations this week. By taking the simple precautions that we all know work, we can get through this holiday season safely together.”
