Some Fulton County schools will offer parents free testing kits so they can check for COVID-19 at home.

The district will receive an estimated 5,700 testing kits through a partnership with the Fulton County Board of Health, said Superintendent Mike Looney at a meeting this week.

The tests will be distributed at no cost to parents at select schools located in areas targeted by the health agency.
