The Bellaire and East Jordan Family Health Centers will be holding Drive Thru Pick Up Days for FREE At-Home Covid Tests and N95 Masks.

Testing for COVID-19 has proven critically important to help reduce the spread of the virus in our communities. East Jordan Family Health Center will be receiving over 5,000 at-home COVID-19 test kits for distribution through their Drive Thru Pick Up Days in Antrim and Charlevoix County. This testing supply program is part of the Biden Administration’s “Path Out of the Pandemic” COVID-19 Action Plan, making available “free COVID-19 testing supplies, FDA-authorized for emergency use, for distribution at no cost to their patients and through their communities,” states HRSA.
The Bellaire and East Jordan Family Health Centers have received the Quidel QuickVue At-Home OTC Covid-19 Tests. These tests are rapid antigen tests that an individual can self-administer at home with results available within 10 minutes. These tests can be used if a person is symptomatic, asymptomatic, or within 6 days of symptom onset. The tests can be self-administered and are recommended for use by individuals 14 years of age and older. For children 2-13 years of age, this COVID-19 test must be performed by an adult.
