Test Kit

The Fairfield County Department of Health 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

Earlier this year, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) purchased two million at-home COVID-19 testing kits with the intent to make these rapid testing kits available and accessible in every Ohio county.


How Do I Get a Test?

  • Free kits from the ODH are available at the Fairfield Department of Health
  • Pull into a curbside pickup space, please remain in your vehicle, and call 740-652-2802
  • FDH staff will deliver the kit, along with a link to instructions, and individuals can test at home


Can I Get More Than 1 Test?

We can give 4 tests per pick up, however if you need more than 4 please call 740-652-2802.


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.
