Find Free At-Home Tests
A COVID-19 at-home test is a rapid self-administered testing option to see if you are currently infected with COVID-19. Results are available in 10-15 minutes. These tests are sometimes also called “home tests,” “self-tests,” or “over-the-counter tests.” Visit the CDC’s COVID-19 Self-Testing At Home or Anywhere page to learn more.
We are distributing at-home COVID-19 test kits to certain public locations in Maricopa County. Any person with or without health insurance can pick up a free COVID-19 test kit at any of these locations during the dates and times listed below.

If you are concerned about the legitimacy of a testing provider, don't be afraid to ask for credentials. Any testing clinic doing rapid testing in Arizona must have a CLIA certification (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment) from the AZDHS Office of Laboratory Licensure and Certification – and that license should be posted and available.
Contact HEOC@azdhs.gov if you have questions about a testing site.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have COVID-like symptoms or have been around someone with COVID-like symptoms, you should get a diagnostic test and stay away from others until you know your results. If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and are experiencing any symptoms, you also should seek testing to determine if you have been infected. While breakthrough infections can occur, the risk of severe illness is significantly less among those who are vaccinated.

All Maricopa County affiliated testing events listed in the calendar are offered free to all community members, with no copays or financial burden for administering the test, regardless of insurance status. At-home test kits found at the locations above are free to all.
Anything listed under Other Testing Providers may be subject to a fee, but it is best to call those vendors ahead of time to verify. If you have insurance, billing and eligibility criteria for testing vary by provider so it's best to check with the testing site and/or your insurer ahead. The type of test offered (PCR, rapid antigen, or antibody), where you seek testing, and frequency of testing (i.e., routine testing required by employment) may influence costs covered by your insurance.
