Delaware County Public Health is now offering free at-home COVID-19 test kits.
You can pick up your free test kit at the Regional Medical Center East Office Building at 613 West Main Street in Manchester Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. There’s no need to call ahead.
Once you pick up the free at-home test kit and read the detailed step-by-step instructions, you will collect a saliva sample at home and return the sample via UPS to the State Hygienic Lab. GNB Bank in Manchester has a UPS Drop Box outside of their building – or you can find other UPS Drop Off locations at ups.com/dropoff.
The test results will arrive to you via email – your healthcare provider will not be notified.
While these at-home test kits provide a convenient option for our community, Regional Family Health, Regional Medical Center and Delaware County Public Health want to stress that their providers, nurses and entire health system are still here for you – so if you have any questions or concerns or if you feel your symptoms are worsening, make an appointment to see your healthcare provider.
