Home Covid Tests Extended Expiration

The CDC has just announced that most of our Covid 19 home-tests are still good. We can ignore the expiration date again (they extended it before, earlier this year) and go by the new date.

Here’s how to find out what that new date is: Go to this website and search for the brand of test you have. Look at the column at the far right. It may tell you to check the box label, meaning the date has NOT been extended for the test you have. Otherwise, it gives a link to a chart. Find your lot number (on the box label) and check the far-right column of that chart for the new expiration date.

It’s good to have some home tests handy but not necessary to discard them when they’ll still work.
