SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Thousands of at-home rapid test kits were distributed at libraries across Miami-Dade County.

Dozens waited in long lines at 27 different branches to get their own test kits.

“My dad is 92, and he tested positive. My mother is 87, and she tested positive. My sister who lives with them tested positive. It’s insane,” said Noel Ortega, who got a test kit.

Miami-Dade County officials said approximately 152,000 take-home rapid test kits were distributed at Miami-Dade Public Libraries over a two-day period.

At-home testing kits were limited to three per household.

Broward County officials said they will hand out testing kits as soon as they are available. Broward Mayor Michael Udine tweeted an update on Tuesday morning saying they have requested 500,000 individual test kits from the state and federal government.
