LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Health officials purchased 1.5 million iHealth at-home tests to distribute across the Natural State with no cost to Arkansans, and state residents can now pick them up at multiple locations.
According to officials, all Arkansans are eligible for these at-home tests, but the state is limiting how many tests an individual can pick up per day.
Individuals can pick up one test kit, which has two tests in. Families can pick up three test kits, which would include six tests.
