Businesses and organizations invited to distribute free at-home COVID-19 test kits

(Fargo, ND)--Fargo Cass Public Health (FCPH) is inviting businesses and organizations to participate in distribution of COVID-19 at-home test kits. Those choosing to participate can distribute kits either internally (for employees and staff use) or externally (for general public use). The at-home test kits are provided by the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) with funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.


This new program is intended to supplement the on-going federal program already in place that allows for every home in the U.S. to order four free at-⁠home COVID-⁠19 tests. To learn more about the current federal program, visit
