COVID-19 Testing Coming To Miami-Dade Schools


Check-in with us every morning as we kick off 90 minutes of Non-Stop ’90s at 8:00 am! @Totally939Miami! - #MackInTheMorning @MACKONTHERADIO & @ClaudiaMonair, who's filling in for @iAmLettyB.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools and the University of Miami Health System are working together to provide FREE COVID-19 testing to students in schools across Miami-Dade County. The effort will be a month-long tour for UM's health system Pediatric Mobile Unit. It started last week at Coral Reef Senior High School and continues today at J.C. Bermudez Doral Senior High, 5005 NW 112th Ave.

This service is for parents to take their children to one of these selected schools to get tested from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. But there's only one catch. It's only available for children ages 4 to 18, identification is not required, but parents will need to accompany the child.

Walk-ins are welcomed but health officials are promoting that appointments be made. You can call 305-243-2059. Now, since this is a month-long tour, here are the other testing sites and when they will be open.
