The project was funded with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national initiative to address COVID-19 health disparities among populations that are at high risk for infection and who are underserved, including minority and rural communities.
The at-home antigen test kits are free. People who are interested in accessing the tests from the vending machines can register at www.snhd.info/testkit. A PIN will be issued once registration is completed. It is recommended that a telephone number be included, but it is not required. The phone number will become the PIN if it is provided. The PIN will allow people to access any of the three vending machines and receive five tests per month.
COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community. People should get tested if they have symptoms or if they are a close contact of someone who has COVID-19, if they are planning on attending a large event or traveling.
Test results for at-home tests are available after 15 minutes. If a positive test result is received, a person should self-isolate for at least five days after the test date. If there are no symptoms of illness, a person can leave isolation after five days but must wear a mask around other people for five more days. If a fever develops, isolation must continue until the fever goes away. The Health District recommends following up with a health care provider if there are questions.
