Testing for COVID-19 is an essential tool to slow the spread of the disease.  Get tested when you’re preparing to travel, think you’ve been exposed, feel sick or have symptoms, or just want peace of mind.  It’s important to know for sure so you don’t pass COVID-19 on to others.

Testing sites:

Please note:  Franklin County Public Health will no longer collect positive COVID-19 at-home test results after 12/15/2022.
