We are Volunteers from Community Wellness America, a medical 501c3 partnering with federally approved Covid-19 testing laboratories to provide self-administered Covid-19 test kits to any member of the public who wishes to receive one, 100% free of charge. 


Who qualifies for the test?

- Every individual over the age of 5 is eligible to receive a free covid-19 test once every two weeks. 

- Citizenship status is never a matter of question, and undocumented immigrants are welcome.

- Vaccination status does not affect eligibility for the test.


Operational details:

- The process with a patient takes 90 seconds to complete, including information gathering and a nasal swab test (This is a mid nasal swab, not a sinus swab). The results of the test will be available via text or email within 3-5 days.

- We are testing for new variants, which are doubling in cases every two weeks. Click here to learn more

- We are providing self-administered tests. Patients use a tiny swab to collect moisture from one of their nostrils. This process takes 10 seconds and is entirely painless.
