A limited number of at-home COVID-19 test kits are available each day for people without transportation. Call 859-899-2222 for help 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday for help.
Because the number of test kits is limited, if we receive more requests than available, they will be prioritized based upon:
• Experiencing 1 or more COVID-19 symptoms
• Known contact with a case or symptomatic person
• Healthcare workers
• Underlying health conditions.
This is not the long swab used by tests performed by medical professionals, so it will be much more comfortable for the average person to use, according to the department.
