Good news! Each household in the U.S. can now have four free COVID-19 at-home tests shipped directly to their home at no cost! All you need to do is visit COVIDtests.gov and enter your contact information and mailing address.
The tests are rapid antigen “at-home” or “self” tests — not PCR tests which require a lab drop-off. The “at-home” or “self” tests can be taken anywhere and give results within 30 minutes.
Guard against scammers trying to steal your personal information. When ordering tests, use the official, secure government website: https://COVIDtests.gov. Watch out for phone scammers, too. If you get a phone call requesting information so that free at-home tests can be mailed to you, hang up — it’s a scam!
Remember: Medicare pays for COVID-19 tests performed by a lab, such as PCR or antigen/rapid tests, at no cost to you when the test is ordered by an authorized health care professional. Those in a Medicare Advantage Plan should check with their plan to see if their plan offers coverage and payment for at-home tests.

Good news everyone!! The Ogunquit Memorial Library received a share of The FABULOUS FIND’s July profits! The Fabulous Find has presented us with a check for $8391.23!
The FABULOUS FIND is a non-profit resale boutique that benefits the local community. You’ll forget you’re in a resale store as you peruse the designer clothing, jewelry, home accessories, furniture, music and books in their bright and cheery space. Your purchase or donation of gently used items will benefit Piscataqua Region arts, environment, food pantry, fuel assistance, animal shelter and educational organizations that the Fabulous Find’s board selects each month!
The FABULOUS FIND partners with three recipients each month and encourages them to use their contact lists to drive up merchandise donations and sales, as all profits benefit them at the end of their month. Our recipients benefit many facets of our community, including the arts, education, the environment, Womenade groups, children, veterans, animals, food, fuel, physical and mental health, etc, and now the Ogunquit Memorial Library. In the past 11 years The Fabulous Find has given almost $2,000,000 to over 155 area non-profits!
