Fulton Partners Launch Home COVID-19 Test Kit Distribution Starting Monday, February 14

February 11, 2022
Home test kits will be available at select health centers & libraries
Fulton County Government and the Fulton County Board of Health will begin distribution of FREE COVID-19 home test kits at select Fulton County Board of Health centers and Fulton County libraries starting Monday, February 14.

Fulton County residents can receive two test kits. Individuals must be present to receive the test kits. Supplies are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Home test kits may be used by anyone over the age of 2 to check their COVID-19 status.

“Our test kit distribution partnership is the latest in Fulton County’s efforts to restore our community to health,” said Chairman Robb Pitts. “The first COVID-19 cases in Georgia were identified in Fulton County on March 2, 2020. Nearly two years later we are still working to bring every possible resource to help our residents stay healthy and safe.”

“The Fulton County Board of Health is proud to work with our partners at Fulton County Government in getting COVID-19 home testing kits directly to the communities we serve,” says Lynn A. Paxton, M.D., M.P.H., Fulton County District Health Director. “As we continue to recommend members of the public be up to date with vaccinations against COVID-19, we are pleased to provide this valuable tool to promptly detect a COVID infection and help residents to take early precautions.”

“With the combined expertise and resources of Fulton County Government, the Board of Health and the Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency, we have been able to deliver world-class service to our residents throughout our pandemic response,” said Fulton County Manager Dick Anderson. “This is the latest element in that effort.”

“Fulton County is pleased to partner with the Board of Health for our home test kit initiative,” said Pamela Roshell, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer for Health, Human Services & Public Works. “We share a commitment to strengthening health equity and access for our residents.”
