Free COVID-19 Rapid Tests for Residents To Be Given Out on First-Come First-Serve Basis

The Revere Department of Public Health received a large shipment of COVID-19 rapid tests to distribute to Revere-based organizations and residents. Residents have multiple options to pick up self-test kits, and the Department of Public Health stresses certain eligibility concerns. To obtain a kit, you must be a resident of the City of Revere (proof of residency required). Residents should be aware that these kits are first come first serve, limit of 2 kits per person, and there will be no ability to reserve or deliver. Please note, vulnerable populations such as the elderly, homeless, and veterans will also be receiving self-test kits through various organizations – this distribution is specifically designed for the general population.

Masks are required for both walk up and drive up. We strongly encourage residents to drive up if possible due to lack of parking.
