At-home rapid Covid tests are now available free of charge at seven Bronx locations: the Bronx Museum of the Arts; the Parkchester, Sedgwick, West Farm and Richmondtown libraries; the Bronx Library Center; and Wave Hill. Pickup hours vary by location, but can be found on the NYC Health and Hospitals website.
These sites form part of a citywide initiative that took off last week, and the supplies will be distributed at sites across all five boroughs. The tests are available for users over the age of two.
These pickup locations aren’t the only way to get your hands on a free home test–every residential address is eligible to order four rapid tests through a form on the USPS’s website.
COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are decreasing in the city, and the previous week’s daily average positivity rate sits at just 2.31%.
