Miami COVID-19 Testing Update

Updated: May 1


Good news for seniors in Miami! The City of Miami Beach is offering in-home COVID-19 testing for homebound Miami Beach seniors that are 65 years and older and are experiencing symptoms associated with the coronavirus — including fever, shortness of breath or a persistent cough. Testing is by appointment only and residents who meet the criteria should call the city’s customer service center at 305.604.CITY (2489) to request an appointment. The customer service center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Since there are a limited number of tests, the city asks that only seniors that meet the criteria schedule an appointment. In-home testing for homebound residents is provided by MedRite with the assistance of the Miami Beach Fire Department.

MedRite MedRite is operating a mobile testing center in Miami Beach. Pre-registration is required, please visit www.medriteurgentcare.com/covid/ to make your appointment. If you have any questions, please call 305.735.3909 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
