BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — People waited in long lines to try and get their hands on a free Covid-19 at home test kit.

Cars lined up leading to the drive-thru site on Harlem Road in Amherst Sunday morning.

The kits were given away on a first come, first served basis.

Officials say they ran out of kits before noon.

A similar scene played out in Niagara County on Saturday where COVID-19 at home test kits were handed out in Niagara Falls, Lockport and North Tonawanda.
