COVID-19 Testing

If you need a COVID test, you may be able to get one at your local Health Department, or you may be able to pick up an at-home test. Availability varies by county.

If you purchase an at-home kit, your insurance company is required to reimburse you for up to eight tests a month.

To better monitor COVID-19 infection rates, some agencies ask that you report at-home test results. You can follow these instructions to administer the test properly and report the results.
