Rapid Covid-19 Test Kits

AVRL will be assisting NS Health with the distribution of Take-Home COVID-19 rapid testing kits to our communities.

Free COVID rapid antigen tests are once again available to pick up at the Library! 

Available during open hours. 

You can pick up a test kit any time during open hours. Find a location near you.

Limited but regular supplies

A new supply will arrive regularly, and each branch’s stock will fluctuate. Library staff cannot take appointments or reserve kits for you.

We want you to have a safe and positive experience when picking up your rapid test kit.

  • One kit (or bundle) per person, please. (Each kit contains 5 tests.)
  • You may pick up a kit for others.
  • Tests should not be used inside the Library. 

Are you feeling sick? 

If yes, please stay home and complete Nova Scotia Health’s self-assessment tool or call 811. And when you’re at your Library, please remember to remain physically distanced from staff and other community members.

Pop-Up Sites Discontinued

With test kits back in our branches, our drive-thru pick-up service has been suspended at this time. Thank you for all of your support!
