An email from Samuels Public Library announced that home COVID-19 testing kits are now available through Dec. 31 at the library.

Samuel’s Library joined libraries across the state and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) in an effort to bring testing to more rural and remote communities.

A virtually guided COVID-19 antigen card home test is for use in your home with digital results in 15 minutes.

A person using the test will need an internet connected device enabled with a camera and a microphone, smartphone or laptop to be a part of the virtual testing session.
