Health Department to Provide Free COVID-19 Home Tests

Starting June 28, the Adair County Health Department will give out free COVID-19 home test kits every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., while supplies last. To receive a test kit, residents should park on the south side of the Health Department parking lot, call 660.665.8491 and a free kit containing two home tests will be delivered curbside.

Households can keep the home tests on hand to use as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • When experiencing symptoms of COVID-19;
  • At least five days after contact or suspected close contact with someone with COVID-19;
  • As a screening tool for congregate settings such as the workplace, schools, churches, parties, and family reunions;
  • As a screening tool immediately before travel and after returning home
  • When asked by a health care provider or public health official to test for the virus.

The Adair County Health Department asks that any resident who tests positive at home call them at 660.665.8491 or use the “Contact Us” form on the Health Department website to report a positive result.
