Your COVID-19 At-Home Test May NOT Have Expired!

Those rapid COVID tests you may have ordered this spring or earlier could still be good, if the expiration dates were expanded. The Food and Drug Administration has issued a table listing authorized tests by manufacturer and brand, with information about possible extended expiration dates and links to specific test lots and new expiration dates.

“In some cases, the expiration date for a test may be 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.” – FDA

To learn if your test/s are still usable, check the table on this page.
