COVID-19 Home Testing

Fulton County is joining the Say Yes! COVID Test At-Home Testing Challenge, providing residents in key zip codes with access to free, rapid COVID-19 test kits that they can self-administer at home.

Fulton County residents in the identified ZIP Codes can order testing kits online for home delivery. Test kits will also be available for pick up from the Fulton County Board of Health clinics and at partner locations.

Who can participate in this program?

The COVID-19 tests are suitable for anyone age 2 and over.

Residents in target zip codes, including 30291, 30213, 30268, 30303, 30308, 30311, 30310, 30314, 30312, 30315, 30318, 30331, 30336, 30344, 30354, 30337, 30349, 30363 can order tests online.

These zip codes were identified based on high rates of COVID-19, lower than average rates of vaccination, and concentration of essential workers.

Who is funding this initiative?

The Say Yes! COVID Test initiative is a cooperative effort from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), community partners, test manufacturer Quidel, and healthcare technology company CareEvolution.

State and local health departments like the Fulton County Board of Health and others help connect the initiative to local community members. Researchers at NIH-supported academic health centers will work with CDC and NIH to use publicly available data to determine if the local testing efforts slowed the spread of COVID-19.

Why use at-home COVID-19 tests?

  • Rapid, self-administered testing has potential to disrupt the spread of COVID-19 that occurs when people are infected, but don’t yet have symptoms.
  • Testing twice a week offers the best chance of identifying COVID-19 infection and isolating early.
  • The COVID-19 tests are authorized for use by the FDA, provided free of charge, and the entire testing process can be managed privately at home.
  • Tests require a quick swab inside each nostril, and results can be read in just 10 minutes.
  • A free, private, and easy-to-use mobile application is available to help individuals in every step of test taking.
  • The maker of the tests, Quidel, is the same company that made the first rapid flu tests used by doctors’ offices in the United States.

How Does it Work?

  • Each test kit supports home testing twice a week for two household members.
  • Individuals who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine or who have the highest risk of exposure to COVID-19, such as people working or going to school outside the home, are ideal candidates for participation, but anyone over the age of 2 is welcome to participate.
