CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (Nov. 19, 2022) — Contra Costa residents can now get free at-home COVID test kits from Contra Costa Health (CCH) through a new mail-order program.
People can order up to 4 free at-home test kits per household. To order fill out this online form or calling 833-829-2626. Each kit contains two test. CCH will mail the kits directly to people’s homes within approximately 5-7 business days. You must be a Contra Costa County resident to be eligible.
“We want these test kits to be a staple in people’s medicine cabinets like aspirin or band-aids,” said Dr. Sofe’ Mekuria, deputy health officer for the County. “Testing gives people the information they need to make healthy choices and reduce the spread of COVID. This helps most during the winter holiday season when families and friends gather indoors.”
Health officials strongly recommend getting tested if you feel sick or plan to attend a large indoor gathering. Anyone who tests positive for COVID, even if they don’t have symptoms, should isolate at home. See the COVID-19 Patients & Contacts page for more information about what to do if you test positive.
The County’s mail-order program will run through the holidays. It may run longer depending on the supply of at-home test kits.
Contra Costa residents also can pick up free at-home test kits at county libraries. People can also get free test kits through their healthcare providers.
