The Pima County Health Department is expanding its free distribution of take-home, self-tests for COVID.
After a successful launch that distributed about 1,300 BinaxNOW tests on Oct. 30, the department added three additional Saturday dates to distribute kits from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Abrams Public Health Center, 3950 S. Country Club Road.
The additional dates will be:
Distribution will be limited to one test kit per person; each kit contains two tests. Tests can be given to individuals of any age. Everyone who receives a test kit will be required to fill out a demographic information form.
These tests are not sufficient for international travel or other organizations that require PCR/NAAT (nucleic acid amplification test) results.
