Starting Monday, Dec. 6, free COVID-19 at-home test kits will be available at additional locations around the County. Mecklenburg County Public Health, in partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, began offering COVID-19 at-home test kits earlier this year to residents facing barriers to testing like difficulty accessing local testing sites or inability to purchase an at-home kit online or at a nearby pharmacy or department store.
Test kits are available via curbside pick-up at designated library branches and public health locations. The kits (available while supplies last) are provided by North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services for free and no ID or insurance is required. No appointment is necessary; public health staff will offer kits based on a walk/drive-up basis. Since at-home test kits do not require clinical supervision, a prescription from a health care provider is not required.
