Free COVID-19 test kits available

Posted

Free home COVID-19 test kits will be available through the end of the year, according to the Washington State Department of Health.

The department will continue to give away the test kits to residents at least through the end of December, despite the end of federal financial support for testing programs, state health officials said last week.

Health officials noted at-home tests offer a way for individuals to check their COVID status without needing to access the healthcare system.

Residents can order up to 10 free at-home test kits per month through the “Say Yes! COVID Test” program.

To order, visit sayyescovidhometest.org.

The kits are delivered to the requester’s home or work address, free of charge.

Health officials note that testing is one of the key ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, along with staying current on vaccines, wearing a well-fitted mask in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings, frequent handwashing, and staying home when sick.
