Cuyahoga Falls Library

Free Home COVID Test Kits

Posted on

The library will distribute BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Home Tests in the drive-thru only. Tests will be available while supplies last on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To Pick-Up a Test:

Patrons can pick up test(s) for their household in the library drive-thru during open hours. Anyone seeking a test who is feeling sick or showing COVID symptoms should send someone else to pick up a test for them. Users must have a smartphone and a computer with a webcam and internet access to administer the at-home test. It is preferred users have already downloaded the app and created a profile prior to picking up a kit. Users may download the NAVICA app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play App Store.

Test Information:

The State of Ohio has partnered with Abbott and eMed to bring rapid, reliable testing into the home where the result is delivered in minutes. The Ohio Department of Health has secured the purchase of at least 2 million tests that can be self-administered outside of a clinical setting. It is Governor DeWine’s goal to make these tests available and accessible in every Ohio county.

The 15-minute BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization for at-home testing in collaboration with a telehealth session. Abbott has selected eMed, a digital health solution, as its telehealth partner. This service for COVID-19 testing prescribes and allows the test to be done rapidly at home with virtual instruction and consultation. A trained telehealth professional guides those being tested through the at-home self-test via video call using the BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test and Abbott’s complementary NAVICA mobile app to enable the testing process and display BinaxNOW COVID-19 test results.
