Small amount of COVID-19 tests available for free at Tillamook County Library branches starting Feb. 14 – Tillamook County Pioneer
A small supply of iHealth COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Home Test Kits remains available for community pickup.
These COVID-19 home testing kits have been made available to our agency to increase access to COVID-19 testing for populations and groups of people who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Through a partnership with the Tillamook County Library, beginning Monday, February 14, 2022, COVID-19 home testing kits will be available at all Tillamook County Library branches. While supplies last, stop by the library during business hours in Manzanita, Rockaway, Garibaldi, Bay City, Tillamook, or Pacific City to pick up a free COVID-19 iHealth home test kit. Please limit yourself to taking one test kit (contains two tests) per person.
If you would like additional COVID-19 home testing, up to four free COVID-19 home testing kits are available for every household in the United States, delivered to your home using the federal site: https://www.covidtests.gov/. Community organizations in Tillamook County, who have chosen to participate, will soon have COVID-19 home testing kits available for the people they work with and serve.
