Miami Beach partners with private clinic to offer in-home COVID-19 tests for seniors

Home-bound seniors in Miami Beach who show COVID-19 symptoms can now request in-home testing through a private clinic that has partnered with the city to make coronavirus tests available to residents ages 65 and up.

MedRite Urgent Care, which operates the only drive-thru COVID-19 testing center in Miami Beach, is expected to begin senior testing on Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to an email City Manager Jimmy Morales sent Wednesday to the mayor’s office.

“I am really pleased that the city has put this program forward,” said Commissioner Mark Samuelian. “Our seniors are a vital part of our community.”
