Missouri will end its COVID-19 test kit program at home in late March

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KY3) – Missouri ends its free PCR test kit program at home at the end of the month.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services announced that the program would end March 31 due to a drop in demand for COVID-19 testing.

Although Missouri began offering these free kits to residents nearly 10 months ago, most of the program’s activity took place in January during the rise of the COVID-19 Omicron variant. Later that month, the federal government also began accepting orders for home tests.

While the test kit delivery program is nearing completion, Missouri residents can still order a COVID-19 test kit until the end of the month.

Missouri DHSS will continue to hold drive-through community test sites as needed. These options, as well as other test resource providers, can be found HERE.
