COVID-19 Test Kits
Several things can be done with expired Covid-19 test kits:
Check to see if your COVID-19 Test Kit has a NEW EXPIRATION DATE!
In some cases, the expiration date for a COVID-19 home test has been extended. An extended expiration date means the manufacturer provided data showing that the shelf-life is longer than was known when the test was first authorized.
Locate the Lot Number on your home test kit and then use the links below to find out if the expiration date has been changed:
