Getting Home COVID-19 Test Kits


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

Getting a Home Test Kit

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

Free home tests

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.
