Demand for more COVID-19 testing rose quickly in recent months along with the Omicron variant. New initiatives—including the federal government’s recently-launched at-home testing distribution program—are designed to increase access and affordability. But with multiple testing options available, it’s easy to get confused about which testing method is best in a particular situation; what is the most efficient way to get and administer at-home tests; and what to do in case of a positive result. As important trusted messengers, community-based organizations and workforces need to be equipped with the latest information on testing to keep their communities informed and protected.

During this 60 minute webinar, experts:

  • Shared an overview of all COVID-19 test opportunities currently available, including how to best utilize testing sites in your community, and secure at-home testing kits for personal use
  • Discussed the federal government plan to equitably distribute at-home tests, ensuring that every American has free and convenient access, and
  • Answered the most frequently asked questions CBOs have about getting their communities tested and protected.
