Rapid COVID-19 Testing

Ohio has invested in rapid COVID-19 testing with a goal of using fast, free, and convenient testing to control the spread of COVID-19. Below are details about the various partners we are working with to make testing available.

In addition, we are working with local health departments, public libraries, and community health centers to make rapid tests – both at-home and onsite – available and accessible for all Ohioans. These tests are especially powerful in providing access to testing for our vulnerable populations.
