ASL Covid-19 Test Kits - San Antonio

We want to alert the public of a potential scam.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are no authorized at-home COVID-19 test kits available for purchase so you can test yourself at home. In fact, the FDA recently warned American consumers of unauthorized fraudulent test kits being marketed to test for COVID-19 in the home.

Fraudulent health claims, tests, and products may pose serious health risks and keep some patients from seeking treatment or delay medical care.

Residents who believe they have been exposed to the virus and have symptoms, should call their healthcare provider for an assessment and BEFORE arriving, and if appropriate, a referral.

Those who cannot afford a doctor’s visit may call Metro Health’s COVID-19 hotline at (210) 207-5779.
