“COVID-19 is increasing at an alarming rate in our community and testing early and often is paramount to helping reduce the spread of this disease.”  Senator Pizzo said. “It is my hope that partnering with organizations in our community on events like this will help Miami get the support it deserves in fighting this pandemic and its economic repercussions.”
