Double-check the expiration date on your COVID home test

Update | Monday, January 10, 2022

Check the expiration date if you received a free COVID home test from Columbus State last year. Some early tests were given an extension. However, there has not been a second extension of the expiration dates of the BinaxNOW Home tests.

Any tests distributed by the College in 2021 with a September expiration date – which was extended to December 2021 – should not be used. They should be set aside until we determine if that date will be extended again. Please refrain from throwing away these tests until further notice. Tests currently being distributed by the College are estimated to expire in February. 

Columbus State is working on securing more BinaxNOW Home Tests.  

For any Columbus State employee working on campus and in need of a home test, you may pick them up at The Police Department on the ground floor of Delaware Hall.

If you are unable to pick up a home test, employees who are working on campus may request to have a rapid at-home test mailed to your address. This process is primarily for students, but on a limited basis, employees may request mailed rapid home tests by completing a form at this link
