DECATUR, Ga. (CBS46) – DeKalb County residents looking to obtain an at-home COVID-19 test will now be able to get one for free at any regional DeKalb County health centers.

“Testing is an invaluable tool that helps reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities,” said DeKalb District Health Director Sandra J. Valenciano, M.D., M.P.H. “Take a COVID-19 test if you start having symptoms, if you’ve been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, or if you’re going to gather with a group of people and want to make sure you’re not infected to protect others. We’re happy to be able to increase access to this valuable resource, as we continue our efforts against COVID-19.”
