Free COVID-19 Tests Available to Residents

In collaboration with The Rockefeller Foundation, Governor Janet Mills launched a new pilot project to mail 125,000 free COVID-19 tests directly to the homes of residents in eligible communities. 

The zip code-based program makes your residents eligible for the free tests. 

Through Project Access COVID Tests (ACT), 25,000 Maine households will receive five at-home rapid tests free of charge. No payment information is required – both the tests and shipping are free to eligible residents – and the tests will be delivered through Amazon approximately one week after ordering. The tests require a quick swab inside each nostril, with results available within minutes. Any individual over the age of two can use the tests.

The program is described in the Governor’s Jan. 28, 2022 Press Release:
