Supporting Testing Access through Community Collaboration

VDH-STACC is an OPT-IN initiative with community libraries launched in November 2021. The goal is to increase access to testing resources for communities at risk for COVID-19 throughout the Commonwealth utilizing a trusted resource community partner. Through this program, VDH distributes free at-home rapid antigen COVID-19 test kits to participating libraries. Community members can pick up FREE test kits from participating libraries (library cards aren’t required) and take the kits home to self-test for COVID-19.

Helpful tips:

If you are symptomatic, or if you have been told to quarantine because you are a close contact to someone who has COVID-19, please send someone else to get the test kit for you

Wear a mask to pick up the test kit

Have a plan to use the test kits within 2 weeks
