Distribution of tests and masks is kind of iffy. My local-area libraries still offer them, but there are no longer lines around the block to get them like there were five months ago. You do need to be careful about the expiration dates on them.
Richard Willis said:
If you still have rapid test kits with expiration dates that have passed, please check the FDA information for their extended expiration dates. These extended dates are based upon careful study of the stability of these lots. There are lot numbers listed with their original and extended expiration dates.
Do a search for whichever of these apply to your kits and then click on the FDA site:
ihealth covid test expiration
flowflex covid test expiration
binaxnow covid test expiration
One time I picked up some tests from my local library and each box had a sticker on it with the revised expiration date. Another time, I got some from the main library and on the table was a conversion chart, with the dates marked on the boxes in one column and the revised expiration dates in the next column.
Last month I finally had a COVID infection. I had my second booster in April, which I'm sure made it much less severe. One night I was coughing a lot and was very unsteady on my feet. My nose didn't even run. Using a home test that morning I confirmed that I had a COVID infection. My symptoms disappeared quickly and I rapidly felt better. This made me test again on the fifth day. Still infected. I retested on the eleventh day and the test was negative. The new booster only became available when I was already infected. I finally got it two days ago. I may have antibodies from the infection, but I don't know which variation of COVID I had, so the more antibodies the better.
