DC Health Encourages District Residents to Continue to Get Tested for COVID-19

Thursday, August 12, 2021

(Washington, DC) On Thursday, August 12, at 11 am, DC Health and members of the DC COVID-19 Community Corps will be on site at Dorothy Height Library, one of the 16 pick-up and drop off locations for Test Yourself DC.
 
Test Yourself DC is a program offering the option to either take a COVID-19 test onsite or drop off a test sample at the closest DC Library drop box at no cost. The program enables individuals to take a COVID-19 test from the comfort of their home without having to wait in line at a testing site. The Test Yourself DC kits can be used on individuals 18 years of age or older or by children ages 3 and older with the assistance of a parent or legal guardian.
 
Members of the DC COVID-19 Community Corps will be demonstrating how straightforward the process is to not only take the at-home COVID-19 test kit sample, but to drop off the test sample as well.
 
Press is also encouraged to demonstrate the Test Yourself DC program process for viewers.
