Missouri residents may now test themselves at home for COVID-19 for free.
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services provides a link on its website where the free testing kit may be ordered. The kit will be delivered in two days and is good for six months.
Once the individual performs the collection by nasal swab, the testing kit must be returned to a FedEx collection site within 24 hours. Shipping is also free. Results of the tests are provided by email within two days.
The test is authorized for emergency use by the FDA. Results may be used for those attending camps, events and travel that requires evidence of a negative test result before participation.
