The Federal government is once again making free at-home rapid COVID-19 tests available through www.COVIDTests.gov. This resource is only open for a limited round this winter. Residents should prepare now and order their test kits.
Starting 12/15/22, all U.S. households can order a total of four at-home COVID-19 tests that will be mailed directly to them for free. Orders for this round of testing will begin to ship starting the week of December 19th and continue in the weeks ahead.
Residents who have difficulty accessing the internet or need additional support placing an order can call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489) to get help in English, Spanish, and more than 150 other languages – 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. E.T., Monday to Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. E.T. on weekends. For more information, people can visit www.COVIDTests.gov.
The Delaware County Health Department, in partnership with local healthcare provider Personic, is offering free COVID-19 rapid on-site Antigen testing, with results available in as little as 15 minutes, as well as RT-PCR testing, the gold standard in COVID testing. Because Personic operates its own lab, PCR results are typically available via email in under 24 hours.
