The City of Miami announced it would be launching an at-home coronavirus testing service for seniors who are not able to leave the confines of their home.
The service allows emergency medical workers with the City of Miami Fire-Rescue to enter the homes of seniors experiencing symptoms of the virus and administer the COVID-19 test.
Officials say results of the test should be available within two to four days.
Senior citizens are the most at risk population in terms of COVID-19, according to health officials.
Seniors needing the service can reach the City’s testing call center at 305-960-5050.
Visits will operate between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. daily.
