Where can you pick up a free COVID-19 home testing kit in Shasta County?

COVID-19 home testing kits are free to Shasta County residents while supplies last.

Shasta County residents can pick up a free COVID-19 test kit at four locations.

Having kits on hand when you need a test can help relieve the pressure on test sites, which are overloaded by the spread of the virus.

The California Department of Public Health sent 7,740 kits to Shasta County Public Health this week, the agency announced Friday night.

  • Shasta County residents may bring up to two complimentary kits per person.
  • Each kit contains two tests.
  • Distribution locations include Shasta College and Shasta County Public Library branches in Anderson, Burney and Redding.

“(Having) a home test (on hand) is a great resource to use when you or a family member is not feeling well, and you want to decide whether to isolate or go about your normal activities,” Public Health Community Education Specialist Amy Koslosky said.
