In an initiative that kicks off today, Bucks County is making free COVID-19 test kits available to residents. Levittown Now provided the following distribution details:

LocationAddressDatesHours (as supplies last)
Sesame Place100 Sesame Road, Middletown TownshipJan. 19, Jan. 26, Feb. 210 a.m.–6 p.m.
Warminster Park1100 Veterans Way, Warminster TownshipJan. 20, Jan. 27, Feb 310 a.m.–6 p.m.
Calvary Church820 Souderton Road, Hilltown TownshipJan. 24, Jan. 3110 a.m.–6 p.m.

Distribution is by drive-through pickup; each car will receive four tests, to be administered at home. None of the locations are equipped for either onsite testing or vaccine shots.

The Bucks County Commissioners voted to pay $2.77 million to Safeware Inc., of Lanham, Md., for the 300,000 test kits. Commissioner Bob Harvie said the county made the decision to purchase the large number of tests after local hospitals reported supply scarcities.

Additional County Health Department information on how to use the tests and what to do with a positive result is online.
