Free self-tests for COVID antigens offered by Pima County

  • Updated

A BinaxNOW rapid COVID-19 test made by Abbott Laboratories.

The Pima County Health Department will offer BinaxNOW test kits to check for COVID-19 infection, at no charge, on Saturday.

They'll be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Abrams Public Health Center, 3950 S. Country Club Road.

BinaxNOW Antigen Tests sell in packs of two tests for $23.99 at Walgreens. Results take about 15 minutes.

The rapid antigen tests look for COVID-19 antigens, or small pieces of protein, in the respiratory tract. These tests are not sufficient evidence for international travel or for other organizations that require results from PCR/NAAT, or polymerase chain reaction/nucleic acid amplification tests.
