At Home COVID Tests

Dear Parents and Guardians,

If you have not ordered already, here are the links for the Federal Government free Covid tests and for the Rockefeller Foundation free tests. Will only take a minute and they come straight to your home.

The Rockefeller Foundation covers all of Maine and allows you to order new kits each month -not sure for how long they will offer this - so get yours soon :)

Federal Free COVID Tests Program

Project Access COVID tests (ACT).

Private insurance may cover free home tests. Please check with your insurance company. Mainecare does cover home tests at the pharmacy if you check out at the pharmacy counter.

The links have information on how to decrease the spread of the virus at home, school, work and in the community. The sites look to provide answers to many of the questions that we all have regarding health and safety.
