Worcester Health partners with Worcester County Libraries to distribute take home COVID test kits

Snow Hill, MD – The Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) is partnering with Worcester County Libraries (WCL) and County Government to connect residents with COVID test kits that they can use at-home. Kits are now available, while supplies last, at all five WCL branches: the Snow Hill, Pocomoke, Berlin, Ocean City, and Ocean Pines libraries.

 “We know that, in Worcester, partnerships between agencies support a stronger community,” said Rebecca Jones, Health Officer for Worcester County. “By working hand-in-hand with our local libraries, we are making take-home COVID-19 testing kits easy and convenient to use no matter where you live in the county.” 

Take-home COVID-19 test kits use rapid antigen testing to detect active COVID infections. They provide results within a few minutes. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness or believe you may have COVID-19, please see a health provider instead of going to the library.

“To protect public health, this service will be available via contactless pick up,” WCL Director Jennifer Ranck said. “Patrons are asked to call the library, and we will place kits on a table outside with their names.”
