Free COVID Test Kits Available

Hundreds of free COVID-19 test kits were provided to community members last weekend through a partnership between Carpinteria Children’s Project (CCP) and the City of Carpinteria. There are still many kits available, and CCP is working to distribute them throughout Carpinteria. Kits can be picked up Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. at the front desk at Carpinteria Children’s Project, 5201 8th St. A maximum of two kits will be provided to each family. Additionally, kits can be picked up at La Tiendita on Friday, Feb. 25, and after mass at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Sunday, Feb. 27. Local nurseries will provide employees with kits through CARP Growers, and CCP plans to provide kits at the Foodbank distribution on March 9 and at a vaccine clinic on March 11. For questions, call (805) 566-1600.
