Rapper Flo Rida is doing his part to make sure companies in his home state are equipped to reopen safely in the wake of nationwide quarantines.

According to TMZ, this month the rapper teamed up with his doctor and business partner, Dr. George Tabi, and launched a $1.5 million healthcare venture called the Asktabs Mobile Wellness Center.

The mission of their mobile facility is to ramp up COVID-19 testing so they can get healthy Florida residents back to work as soon as possible as the state reopens its economy.

It’s been reported that Flo Rida’s mobile site will have to capacity to test up to 1,500 people per day and be equipped with a staff of up to 14 people. In fact, Asktabs had its first round of tests just last week at The Metro Wrapz company in Miami, where they say 30 employees were able to get tested.

While anyone can benefit from the testing site, the entertainer apparently wants to make providing tests for businesses his main focus so that those who have been out of work can get back to generating an income as quickly as possible while still keeping in mind the existing COVID-19 guidelines.

In addition to Miami, Flo Rida and his business partner plan to travel to other cities around the Sunshine State. Previously, the duo launched a CBD infused immune-boosting daily vitamin gummy called Jet Setter. The van from that vitamin business has now been repurposed to transport testing supplies.
