Mecklenburg County Expands COVID-19 At-Home Test Kit Distribution Program





CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Health officials say beginning Monday, December 6th, more free COVID-19 at-home test kits will be made available at additional locations around Mecklenburg County.

Officials say Mecklenburg County Public Health, in partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, began offering these at-home COVID-19 testing kits earlier this year to residents facing barriers to testing.

Including those who had trouble accessing local testing sites or those who could not afford to purchase an at-home kit.

Health officials say the new test kits will be available via curbside pick-up at designated library branches and public health locations.
