Library Continues to Offer Free Rapid At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits

Central Rappahannock Regional Library continues to distribute free at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits in partnership with the Virginia Department of Health.

Customers can pick up test kits through curbside pickup at most library branches during open hours. Kits are not available at Towne Centre Branch, Fried Center, or IdeaSpace.

Up to 4 COVID test kits can be requested per visit. Test kits are currently in stock with limited quantities. If stock runs out, a notice will appear on and CRRL’s social media and be updated once stock is replenished.

Neither a picture ID nor a CRRL library card is required to pick up a test kit. These easy-to-use kits are for use at home. Each kit is labeled with instructions and an expiration date.
