Free at-home COVID tests are back at Charlotte-area libraries starting Monday | WFAE 90.7

Starting Monday, Mecklenburg County’s health department is once again handing out free at-home rapid antigen tests for COVID-19 at certain Charlotte-area libraries.

The county suspended the program in late December because of a shortage of at-home test kits. But now the health department says it has received additional supply. Beginning Monday, county residents can pick up one free test kit curbside at certain library locations.

No identification, prescription or insurance is required and there is a maximum of four tests per household, the county said. Tests will be available while supplies last. Free at-home tests are also available at the county health department’s southeast Charlotte location on Billingsley Rd.
