For anyone who needs to test for Covid-19, BinaxNOW tests are available during the workday at Emergency Management next to the old elementary school and also at Community Health in the Health and Wellness Center.  After hours you can get a test at Fire and Safety. Home tests provided for free from the federal government are no longer available. The Food and Drug Administration has issued guidance on older tests, such as the orange and white home tests, and has extended the expiration dates of some. To check for a test’s viability, follow the FDA’s table on extended expiration dates and search for the specific manufacturer and name matching the test’s box label.
