As Florida is one of the U.S. states starting to reopen after the COVID-19 shutdown, employers will need a way to ensure people aren’t infected with the virus so they can return to work.
To help solve that problem, Flo Rida partnered with his doctor, Dr. George Tabi, to launch a $1.5 million project called the Asktabs Mobile Wellness Center. It was created so people can be tested before going into the workplace.
The mobile center can test up to 1,500 people a day with 14 staff people, TMZ reports. Tests are for everyone, but the priority is to provide testing to companies so they can check the health status of their workers.
The mobile center gave its first group of tests to 30 employees at a Miami-based company called The Metro Wrapz last week, performing coronavirus antibodies tests for the workers at the sign company.
“Me and my team wanted to do our part in bringing back the city to its feet sooner and most importantly stronger!” wrote Flo Rida on Instagram Wednesday.
Florida is currently in the second week of its phase 1 reopening plan, with restaurants, hair salons, gyms and retail stores opening with limited occupancy.
Some beaches in Florida are now open as well, like in Broward County, where sitting or lying on the beach isn’t permitted, nor is having groups of more than 10 people. No picnicking is allowed, and people can’t bring umbrellas, chairs, or coolers.
After Flo Rida shared news of his mobile COVID-19 testing center, people thanked him on his Instagram page.
“Now that’s a celebrity using his means to help the people! Amazing! 🙌🏼♥️,” read one comment.
