RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – After more than two years and millions of tests, Wake County COVID-19 drive-through testing sites are now closed. At the peak of the omicron variant surge, the county reported they could average 10,000 tests per day.

It’s now up those seeking a test to find a state site or test at home. Options still available for testing in Wake County can be found below.

Free at-home tests

There are four ways to get a free at-home rapid test in North Carolina. Kits are available through the state, a federal program and some health departments.

State program: Under the state program, a kit is sent to your home through overnight shipping. After collecting your sample, the kit is then sent back to the lab with results available online within two days. Click here to order your free test.

Federal program: Under the federal program, three sets of four free at-home tests are available for every household. Rapid tests are delivered to your home within a few days. The rapid test will provide results in minutes and do not need to be shipped off to a lab. Click here to order your free tests.
