Home COVID-19 tests are available through most local pharmacies and large chain stores. However, retailers have had a difficult time keeping home tests in stock, and home tests are in limited supply online.
Monoclonal treatments are available at Walmart pharmacies across the state through a coordinated distribution with the Tennessee Department of Health. The treatments are free.
