At-Home COVID-19 Testing Kits Available

Friday, Apr 16, 2021 at 4:45 pm

Categories:

The City of Bexley has COVID-19 rapid testing kits to distribute to symptomatic residents and those who have been exposed to COVID-19. These tests are recommended for individuals suspected of having COVID-19 within the first seven days of symptom onset, and discouraged for asymptomatic individuals and those who haven’t had a known exposure. This test should not be used within 90 days of a prior positive COVID test. Depending on need, test kit distribution may be expanded to those who are not experiencing symptoms at a later date. These are self-collected nasal swab tests that require access to both a smart phone and computer with internet access and camera. 

For students of Bexley City Schools, please contact the appropriate school nurse to request a test:

Cassingham Complex: 
Nurses Amy Poling and Terri Grace

Maryland Elementary:
Nurse Joann Spain

Montrose Elementary:
Nurse Cindy Tyson

If you are not a student and would like to request a testing kit, submit the form located on our website, www.bexley.org/coronavirus. Please remember that quarantine guidelines still apply and that one cannot test out of quarantine. Tests will be delivered to the address indicated as soon as possible after submission, Monday-Friday.

For residents without access to a smartphone or computer, alternative testing options are available through your primary care physician, Franklin County Public Health, and Bexley Urgent Care. Please contact these providers in advance. 

For questions, including information about other services available (masks, social services, financial assistance, etc.), contact the City’s Volunteer Coordinator, Elizabeth Ellman, at eellman@bexley.org or (614) 559-4200.
