More than 1,000 at-home COVID-19 test kits were given out in less than three hours Sunday at Henderson Middle School on Old Brook Road in North Side, one of four distribution sites for Richmond Public Schools families. Cars were lined up throughout the neighborhood to pick up the tests. Many people were turned away when the supply ran out.
