Twin Falls Residents Can Get Sent Up To 4 Free At Home COVID Tests
Right now you can get free at-home COVID-19 tests sent to your home. Every home in the United States is eligible for 4 of them.
How Do I Get The Free At Home COVID-19 Tests?
All you have to do to get the tests sent directly to your door is go to the COVID test website and sign up. It says it will take about 7 to 12 days to ship due to demand. These tests are designed for you to be able to take them anywhere so you don't have to wait at a doctors office to get tested. That can take a really long time.
What Are The Benefits of Having At Home Tests
You can test without going to a doctor or dropping it off at a lab. You can take the test at home and it takes 30 minutes to give you results. It is efficient and easy to tell if you have COVID and it is a faster way to tell if you have to quarantine or not. These tests are also referred to as self=tests or over-the-counter tests.
What Happens If I Test Positive Or Negative On The At Home Test
If you test positive on the self administered test you are very likely to have COVID-19 and you should follow the CDC guidelines. If you test negative on the at home test you are likely not contagious or less likely to spread COVID. There is more information on the CDC website.
