A federal pilot program will provide one million free at-home COVID-19 tests to 125,000 O‘ahu residents.

Residents in eligible zip codes will receive eight antigen rapid tests. Participants are asked to use the tests twice a week for four weeks, regardless of symptoms.

Residents of the following zip codes are eligible for the program: 96701, 96706, 96707, 96712, 96717, 96730, 96731, 96734, 96744, 96762, 96782, 96786, 96789, 96791, 96792, 96795, 96797, 96813, 96814, 96815, 96816, 96817, 96818, 96819, 96821, 96822, 96825, 96826, 96844, 96850, 96853, 96854, 96857, 96858, 96859, 96860, 96861, 96863.

The state Department of Health says ideal candidates are unvaccinated or have the highest risk of exposure, such as people working or going to school in person. However, anyone over the age of two can participate.

Test kits are available through Oct. 18, or while supplies last. The tests cannot be used for workplace testing requirements or other programs such as Safe Access O‘ahu.
