HHS Commissioner Caulton-Harris stated, “The Department of Health and Human Services will make these free rapid COVID-19 at-home test kits readily available for our residents at our neighborhood community sites, senior centers, and public libraries. Getting these COVID-19 test kits into the community so that our residents have easy access to getting tested if they feel the need to is our goal. This virus is here to stay and we must be cognizant to that fact. We must remain vigilant.”
