Rapid Antigen Self Test Kits are still available for pick up at the District Office.

We encourage you to stop in and pick up your supply for the upcoming Holiday Season. The kits are available free of charge.

For the safety of our employees and other District of Katepwa residents, please DO NOT enter the office to pick up rapid antigen self-test kits if you currently are experiencing (or recently experienced) symptoms of COVID-19.

Self-testing is safe, easy to use, provides results within 15 minutes and, most importantly, is gentle. Self-tests only take a few seconds to collect a sample using a swab that goes into the soft part of each nostril. These tests can be done almost anywhere, at any time to see if you may have COVID-19. Routine, voluntary testing at home will help prevent asymptomatic transmission to those who are not able to be vaccinated and will reduce COVID-19 transmission in the community.
