COVID-19 Antigen Test FDA-Extended Expiration Dates
Most at-home tests can be safely used past the printed expiration date located on the box. Check the FDA’s At-Home COVID-19 Test page to see if the expiration date of your test kit has been extended. Note, the expiration date on the box is printed as year- month - day. For example, 2022 11 20 means November 20, 2022.
You can also refer to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health's website for any other information regarding testing for COVID-19.
Your child's school will be providing an at-home rapid antigen COVID-19 test for all students and staff ahead of the Winter Break.
