SEVCA Offers Free At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits to Prevent Holiday Virus Spread

Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA) has a limited supply of rapid at-home COVID-19 test kits, available at no cost to Windham and Windsor County clients. Using an at-home test kit before and after holiday gatherings can be a quick, easy way to detect infection and help reduce the spread of the virus. Thanks to the VT Department of Health, SEVCA has test kits to distribute before and after Christmas as well as before and after New Year’s. Both Lucira Check It tests and Abbott BinaxNOW tests will be available at each of SEVCA’s various office, program, and store locations, including in: Bellows Falls, Brattleboro, Chester, Hartford, Springfield, Westminster, White River Junction, and Windsor. If you would like a test kit, please contact the SEVCA program and location through which you receive services. If you cannot get in touch with your preferred program or location, you may contact Kathleen Devlin, Special Projects Director: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please remember that rapid at-home COVID-19 self-testing is one of many risk-reduction measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with vaccination, masking, and physical distancing. False negative and false positive results may occur. For additional information on at-home self-testing, please visit here.

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1937
