Getting Home COVID-19 Test Kits


Used properly, home COVID-19 test kits can detect infection early and prevent the spread to others.

Home tests for COVID-19 are sold at most pharmacies, and are also available free from county health departments.

Getting a Free Home Test Kit

Free tests can be picked up at any county health department during normal hours. A family can get 8 tests (4 packages of antigen rapid self-tests) per month without a doctor's note or other documentation. No appointment is needed.
