Monroe County residents can now pick up additional at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits at participating Monroe County Libraries. The tests are free to the public and began distributions, February 28. 

Several county-run COVID-19 testing sites will cease operation effective March 1. 

“With our COVID case numbers steadily declining over the past month and free vaccines and boosters more widely available, it’s clear we are in a new stage of this pandemic,” Monroe County Executive Adam Bello said. 

Bello said in the new pandemic stage, the focus is making home testing more accessible by partnering with the library system.

The test kits are available during normal library operating hours at the libraries participating in distributing tests. For a full list of library locations and hours, visit https://libraryweb.org/hours/locations-hours/.

The mobile vaccination sites placed at area libraries and schools will remain available. 

Although most libraries will be participating in the rapid test kit distribution to the public, Greece, Parma, Chili, East Rochester, Webster, Hamlin and Scottsville libraries will not be distributing tests.  

The Antigen testing sites are now limited to the county-run site, located at 804 North Goodman Street, and on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 4 p.m.- 7 p.m.
