[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Test Distribution

COVID Test Distribution 2

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) has partnered with Virginia public libraries to provide free virtually guided rapid antigen tests.  

  • Each kit is labeled with instructions and rapid antigen tests provide results within 15 minutes.
  • Tests should be used within two weeks and must be stored between 36 – 86 degrees F.
  • Tests are meant to be used immediately and not meant to be stored for future use.

If you have questions regarding testing or test results, please contact your healthcare provider or your local health department (, visit the VDH’s website (, or call the Virginia COVID Information Center at 1-877-829-4682, Mon-Fri 8am-6pm.
