Test Kit

There are no more time slots available for test kits, please check your local library or pharmacy.



*Update* Fairfield County Health Department now offers two kinds of 15-minute rapid tests. The proctored test for travel and return to school is still available, but we do also have general rapid test kits. These kits can be done without calling or video chatting with anyone. There is a link to report your results if you need to. Both test kits are fast and reliable. When you come to pick up your tests, please verify which type you would like with the operator on the phone.


The Fairfield County Health Department now offers at-home COVID-19 testing kits for free when you request them online for Curbside service. Please select date and time available from online form.


The Background

Where Can I Test?

Tests may not be completed in the FDH building and FDH staff may not assist beyond handing out the free tests. A QR code and link will be found on a corresponding piece of paper and the directions can be followed to complete the test or use the testing app.


What Do I Need to Test?

Email address, Internet connection and a device with a webcam – smartphone, tablet, or computer – are required. Abbott Labs, the maker of the tests, provides a free app called NAVICA that includes step-by-step instructions to both take the test and register the results. It also provides access to health professionals who can help interpret results.
