Public Library, Mahoning County Public Health to Distribute 4,000 Rapid COVID Tests
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County is partnering with Mahoning County Public Health to distribute 4,000 rapid at-home COVID tests starting Jan. 3.
Distribution will be limited to branches outside the City of Youngstown, including the Austintown, Boardman, Campbell, Canfield, Poland, Sebring, Springfield, Struthers and Tri-Lakes branches, says Maggie Henderson, strategic communications officer. Residents can call 330 744 8636 starting Monday to reserve up to four free tests, no library card needed. The tests will be distributed by curbside pick up.
The Main, Brownlee Woods, East, Michael Kusalaba and Newport branches will not participate in the distribution, Henderson says. However, the library is anticipating its own shipment of tests next week, which will be available at all of its branches.
