Everylwell Home Test Kits
If someone gets tested at a community-based testing site, they have the option of stopping by the care coordination tent and picking up an Everlywell home test kit for a family member (age 16 and older). Please note, they cannot drop by the test site and just pick up a test kit if they are not also there to get themself tested through the testing site. At home test kits are intended to be used only when someone cannot go to the site to get tested. Please make sure to follow the directions that come with the test kit.
These tests can be ordered if you cannot attend the test site or physical limitations may make it difficult to go to a test site.
