COVID-19 TESTS: You may be interested in testing if you feel you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Testing will confirm infection which will allow you to take precautions to prevent spread and/or seek medication to relieve COVID-19 symptoms. The federal government is no longer making four free tests available to households. You can purchase tests at pharmacies and retailers, and may be able to get them (for free) at health centers or municipal health departments. More information here.
