Berkeley County Library System (BCLS) is offering FREE COVID-19 Rapid (Antigen) or Saliva (PCR) Test Kits* provided by S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC). Interested participants may contact a Berkeley County Library, including the Mobile Library, during operating hours, to pick up a test kit.
*COVID-19 Rapid (Antigen) or Saliva (PCR) Test Kits are subject to availability.
“Berkeley County Library System is excited to collaborate with SCDHEC to provide Take-Home COVID-19 Rapid (Antigen) or Saliva (PCR) Test Kits to library customers,” said Gene Brunson, MLIS, Library Director. “The ability for the library to provide accessible and convenient health literacy is a powerful resource for many in the community.”
“The COVID-19 Rapid (Antigen) Test Kits are easy to use, have received emergency use authorization, and provide a result in minutes as opposed to hours or days,” said a SCDHEC News Release. “While the brand of test that DHEC receives may change over time, the authorization, ease of use, and resulting times will not. At-home test results are not required to be reported to DHEC but can help an individual take appropriate action to monitor their health and prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others.”
