East Georgia Healthcare Center (EGHC) has received thousands of QuickVue COVID At Home, over-the-counter, COVID-19 test kits that will be distributed free of charge to businesses and organizations in our community. These test kit packs come with two in each package and are in the form of a nose swab test.

The test kits are by request only by completing the “COVID AT HOME TEST REQUEST” form on the website, eghc.org. Any business or organization with less than 100 employees, as well as schools, can qualify to receive the free test kits.

QuickVue Test Kits are available in both English and Spanish on a first come, first serve basis.

“East Georgia Healthcare Center is excited to be able to help our community be proactive in our stance against the COVID virus by having at-home test kits available,” said Peyton Frye, Practice Manager for EGHC. “We are fortunate to have been selected as one of the few healthcare centers who will receive early shipments of these tests, provided by the Health Resources and Services Administration, a division of HHS. These test kits will provide peace of mind to the communities we serve as we all weather another peak in COVID cases.”

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that COVID-19 self-tests are one of many risk-reduction measures, along with vaccination, masking, and physical distancing, that protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

East Georgia Healthcare Center is a non-profit community-owned health center, governed by a local board of directors, majority of whom are active patients. They provide services in 13 counties in southeast Georgia, and have been committed to provide great quality care since its start in 1994. EGHC has locations in Swainsboro, Baxley, Metter, Mount Vernon, Reidsville, Soperton, Statesboro, Vidalia, Wadley, Millen, Sylvania, and Claxton.
