With state COVID testing sites shut down on June 30, 2022, and COVID case counts on the rise again with the Omicron BA.5 Variant, we wanted to share an updated list of testing resources available to you and your family.
FREE AT-HOME COVID TEST KITS ARE READILY AVAILABLE FROM SEVERAL RESOURCES:
The US Postal Service
You will be shipped 4 At-Home COVID Test Kits containing 2 tests in each box. These test kits arrive in 2 shipments typically within two weeks of your request and will arrive right at your doorstep.
Health Insurance Companies have been Federally mandated at this time to cover the cost of up to 8 At-Home Tests (4 test kits) per month. The majority of Health Insurance companies are covering that cost up front, a few are requiring you to purchase the tests and submit them for reimbursement. You may check your eligibility at the link listed above and order tests accordingly.
