Ohio is making available at-home COVID-19 tests that can be self-administered outside a healthcare setting using telehealth services. The Abbott BinaxNOW Home Test takes about 15 minutes and will be available for individual use and for use by Ohio schools. The in-school option offers Ohio public and private schools another means to ensure safe learning environments, and the Ohio Department of Education, with the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Educational Service Center Association, will provide the tests to schools that choose to use them. Find additional details here about the tests and how they will be implemented to help protect Ohioans from COVID-19.
