Here’s where you can get a free at-home rapid COVID test in Anne Arundel County

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman on Tuesday said the county is distributing 100,000 at-home COVID-19 rapid tests for free at various locations.

Health departments across the state have begun to distribute COVID-19 tests at libraries and other public locations to meet a frenzied demand ahead of the holidays, and as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations quickly increase. Tests will be available at Live! Casino & Hotel, Westfield Annapolis, Arundel Mills, fire stations, police departments and county government offices, among others, Pittman announced.

Each household can take up to three test kits. Each box contains one test. Locations are running out of test kits quickly; check the county website to see if a location still is distributing tests at aacounty.org/coronavirus/free-home-test-kits/index.html.

“We have a shortage of test kits and the lines at our testing centers are long as this surge, and the holidays, have got people to do the right thing, which is to test when they have symptoms,” Pittman said. The 100,000 tests arrived at the health department Friday, Pittman added. He expects all of the kits will be distributed during the holiday.
