WASHINGTON (WDVM) — District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser and D.C. Health have launched a program offering at-home COVID-19 testing kits called Test Yourself D.C.
Through the program, residents can either take a COVID-19 test on-site or drop off a test sample at the closest D.C. Library drop box at no cost. There will be around 8,000 Test Yourself D.C. kits available each week, with 100 to 200 test kits available at each site every day.
The week of April 19, testing kit locations will be open for pickups Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Starting the week of May 3, the locations will be open for pickups Monday to Saturday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Testing kits can be dropped off seven days a week, no later than 8:00 p.m. If test samples are not delivered to drop-off locations by 8:00 p.m. of the same day of collection and registration, individuals will be notified that their sample cannot be processed and must be re-collected.
Test samples submitted via the Test Yourself D.C. kit will be sent to one of the District’s laboratory partners and will take three to five days for results to be delivered.
