Evanston teen creates site to help people find at-home COVID-19 tests

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — If you’re among the many people looking for at-home COVID-19 tests before returning to school or work, an Evanston teenager has set up a website to help.

Eli Coustan ran a website much of last year that helped people find COVID-19 vaccines.  The 14-year-old said he learned from that experience when setting up findacovidtest.org.

Volume has been as high as 677 daily visitors in the few days since it launched. His father, Charles Coustan, said it’s much smaller than the 20,000 visitors with the vaccine site but has room to grow.

The free site allows people to search for and buy a dozen different brands of at-home tests from online retailers.
