We are now able to distribute the self testing kits. Please call the office prior to stopping in for more detailed instructions. Kits may be returned to us or dropped into a UPS service. There is no charge for the kits and a mailing label is included. These are intended for people with an exposure or symptoms not requiring a doctor's care. We have a very small number of BINAX rapid tests. We can only use these for persons with a known exposure and minor symptoms or for persons traveling and needing a test just before. A PCR nasal or saliva test is recommended for symptomatic persons since they should be isolating anyway.
We will be holding testing clinics as demand calls for. Watch our Facebook page or call us for details at 712-297-8323.
