Coshocton County COVID-19 Home Test Kit distribution announced

| July 29, 2022

Those exposed to someone who has tested positive should self-quarantine, watch for symptoms and take a COVID test within five to seven days, sooner if symptoms show up.

COVID-19 home test kits are covered under most insurance and can be picked up at your local pharmacy. Due to increased demand for home tests and to assist those unable to obtain home tests through their pharmacy, the Coshocton County General Health District is partnering with the Coshocton Public Library to boost home test kit availability via their curbside pickup only service Mondays – Saturdays at both of these locations, first come, first served:

Location and hours of operation: Coshocton Public Library – M-W 9:30-8 p.m., TH & Fri 9:30-6 p.m., Sat 9:30-5 p.m.; West Lafayette Branch – M-W 10-7 p.m., TH & Fri 10-5 p.m., Sat 10-3 p.m.

Do not: Enter the library, hoard test kits, call to reserve test kits, ask staff to assist with testing, or ask staff for medical advice.

Do: Park in a curbside pickup parking spot, call when you arrive (Coshocton – 740-622-0956 or WestLafayette – 740-545-6672), and tell staff how many test kits are needed. One kit per member of your household is available.

Stop the spread of COVID by: Maintain safe distancing; Consider wearing masks indoors; Stay home if you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19; Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer; Regularly disinfect high touch surfaces; and Consider testing (even if no symptoms) before attending family/community events (fairs, concerts, etc.).
