Self-Testing Instructions / Fast Facts

The Indian River Area Library (IRAL) has partnered with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) on a pilot project with libraries across the state to offer free, at-home COVID-19 testing kits for Michiganders. IRAL received 300 COVID-19 at-home test kits that each include two tests, including instructions. Additional kits will be shipped to participating libraries as needed and more libraries will be added to the distribution in the coming weeks. Information will be posted at
