We offer free COVID-19 take-home rapid testing kits via curbside pickup and drive-up window. You may have one test per member of your household, up to four tests, while supplies last.
The test kits we currently have are administered by a telehealth professional and a include a "test-to-treat" option.
To take the test, you will need to set up an account and make a video call, so you will need an email address, access to the internet and a device with a camera, such as a smartphone, tablet or computer. If you don't have this technology, please visit an in-person testing site.
How to get a testing kit
- If you are sick or have been exposed to someone who's sick, please send someone else to pick up your test.
- At Old Worthington Library or Worthington Park Library, pull up to the marked curbside pickup parking spots and call or text the number on the signs to let us know you'd like a test. At Northwest Library, you can request a test at the drive-up window. (Please note that tests are not available inside our libraries.)
- A library staff member will bring you a testing kit.
- You must take your test at home, not at the Library.
- Library staff members are not trained to help you take the test or answer any questions about the test.
Taking the test
- Once you are home, visit ohio.emed.com, or download and install the NAVICA app for Apple or Android devices.
- Create an account and follow the steps on the website or app. You will start a video call with a trained telehealth professional who will guide you through the testing process.
- If you test positive, you can immediately connect to a clinician who can provide a medical evaluation and, if you qualify, prescribe treatment-- at no cost to you.
