UPDATE 10:48 a.m. Tuesday: We were notified by the Salina Family Healthcare Center at 10:48 a.m. Tuesday that all of the test kits were distributed, even though the event was scheduled to start at 11 a.m.

According to information from Salina Family Healthcare Center, "The line of traffic waiting for COVID-19 tests began to block traffic significantly. Due to this we began handing out tests. All of the available 236 tests were distributed in less than 15 minutes."

Salina Family Healthcare Center will be distributing free COVID-19 rapid at-home test kits during a drive-through event on Tuesday.

A maximum of two kits per vehicle will be distributed as supplies last from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday in the northwest side of the parking lot of Ace Hardware, 321 S. Broadway Boulevard.
