About COVID-19 home testing:

• Home COVID-19 tests are tests you can perform at home and get your results without sending a sample to a lab for testing. These tests are easy to use, produce quick results, and can be purchased over the counter if needed.

Have you tested positive for COVID-19?

• You should report positive results from your home test to your health care provider, who will record the test result in your electronic health record. Your health care team will help you with questions about potential and current symptoms of COVID-19, the personal care you can provide at home, and when to seek medical attention if symptoms worsen.
