Learn About COVID-19 Antigen (Rapid) Testing

Antigen testing is an easy and convenient way to test for COVID-19 compared to the more popular PCR testing method. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for antigen tests that can identify SARS-CoV-2.

Many local retailers and pharmacies offer over-the-counter at-home antigen tests available for purchase. Free at-home antigen self-test kits are available for pickup at County COVID-19 testing sites. Proof of living, working, or attending school in San Bernardino County is required. For more information, visit Limit two kits per person. Exceptions are available for caretakers or those who are homebound.
