Free at-home COVID tests are now available for every Maine school

Maine schools are now eligible to request free at-home COVID-19 tests to distribute to students and staff.

By way of federal funding to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, every school in Maine will be eligible to receive an at-home testing kit for each student and staff member at its facility. The kits will contain five to six rapid tests, according to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

Schools will be able to request kits until April 15, and the test kits will start being shipped on April 25. Depending on the size of the order, the tests may take several weeks to arrive.
