At-home COVID-19 tests are becoming harder and harder to come by. But if you’re a Boston resident, there’s a way for you to get at-home tests for free.


The Boston Globe reports that the Boston Public Health Commission is handing out free at-home rapid tests at designated Boston Public Library branches and designated Boston Centers for Youth and Families locations. Boston residents can grab one two-test kit for each member of their household until supplies run out.


Between this and Mayor Wu’s vaccine requirement announcement earlier this morning, Boston is clearly ramping up the fight against the current Omicron wave of COVID-19.
