MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami-Dade County leaders and Communitel are holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning to celebrate the opening of Communitel’s COVID-19 testing facility at Miami International Airport.

According to a news release from the county, the testing facility will be open daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Concourse E ground level median, in front of Door 11.

The facility will be open for both walk-ins and appointments.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said Miami International Airport has seen over 100,000 passengers on an average day for the last seven days.

“Travel is picking back up, and so that means more people are going to want this service,” she said.

Antigen and PCR tests will both be offered at the site, with the PCR test results being available within 40 minutes and the antigen test results being available within 24 hours.

The cost varies from $50 to $150 depending on what type of test is needed and how quickly the person wants results.
