Free Rapid Covid-19 Antigen At-Home Test Kits

Handley Regional Library System is now distributing free rapid Covid-19 Antigen at-home test kits at all three library branches starting today as a partnership with the Virginia Department of Health and several other libraries state-wide.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this free Covid-19 home test kit to do our part to help ensure a safer community,” said John Huddy, Director of Handley Regional Library System. “We want to make this process as quick, easy, and safe as possible to get these kits in the hands of those who need it.”

Not just limited to library patrons, these Covid-19 Antigen At-Home Test Kits are available to anyone in the community.

Covid tests can be picked up at any branch at any time during operating hours. 

If you have questions about using the test, please contact your healthcare provider or local health department. Library staff cannot help administer the test or advise on how to use it. Test kits are available while supplies last.
