About at-home COVID-19 Tests:

• At-home COVID-19 tests are tests that you can take at home and get your results without sending a sample to a laboratory for testing. These tests are easy to use, produce rapid results, and can be bought over-the-counter if necessary.

Did you test positive for COVID-19?

• You should report your positive at-home test results 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 COVID-19 symptoms, what self-care you can provide at home, and when to seek health care if symptoms worsen.
