COVID-19 Testing changes beginning December 21

 

December 17, 2020



Lewis County Health Department will no longer offer COVID-19 drive-through testing on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, beginning December 21. A self-testing alternative will be provided.

In order to use the Everlywell Covid-19 Home Collection Kit you must be at least 18 years old, have a smart phone to register yourself, watch an instructional video at https://vimeo.com/399342549, have a valid email address.

This self-test process will take at least 15 minutes. The entire test, including the nasal swab, will be done in your car at the health department and left for shipment.

Test results will be emailed when the sample arrives at the lab, and then again with the results.

Health department staff will be available to answer questions.

Testing will continue at the tent on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11 a.m.

All testing remains at no charge. Contact the health department at 931-796-2204 to see if you are eligible for this alternative form of testing.
