If you have symptoms or have been around someone who has tested positive for COVID, you should get tested as soon as possible.
Residents are encouraged to take advantage of no-cost-at-home COVID tests. The federal government program provides every home in the U.S. with 2 sets of 4 free at-home tests. You can order the rapid antigen tests online.
The NC Department of Health and Human Services and LabCorp also have a program to request free at-home testing kits. They are PCR tests that must be mailed back to a lab in a postage-paid envelope. You can make a request for the NCDHHS test online.
Finally, Wake County provides no-cost at-home antigen tests to the public. Stop by during regular business hours and pick up a maxim of 4 boxes per household from the self-serve tables.
