Public Health Offering Free At-Home COVID-19 Tests to Mendocino Residents


The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health:

At-home COVID tests, also referred to as “over the counter” tests, are now available through Public Health. The tests are being distributed immediately through community groups that have significant public contact and through our offices in Fort Bragg, Willits, and Ukiah.

At-home COVID tests are safe and effective tools for keeping friends and family healthy this holiday season. Public Health recommends you test at home before you go to a gathering, before returning to school, and before and after you travel. If you test positive, stay isolated for 10 days and until you show no symptoms for at least 24 hours.

Free tests are available. Contact the Call Center for services or more information, or if you need a Work or School Release Letter, or other resources to support you in isolation. Call Center: 707-472-2759

Free vaccine booster shots continue to be available at primary care providers, pharmacies,
and at the County’s fixed and pop-up clinics. More information is available at

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
