Radon can't be seen, smelled, or tasted, but high levels of radon gas may be in residents’ homes, increasing their risk of lung cancer. Fortunately, testing is easy and high radon levels can be lowered. During COVID-19, individuals and families are spending more time at home, making it even more important to check for high radon levels.
The Barry-Eaton District Health Department is giving away FREE Radon Test Kits during the month of January, first-come-first serve! Limit one per household.

Test kits will be offered at the following locations during normal business hours:
