The program provides residents in target zip codes with access to free, rapid COVID-19 test kits that they can self-administer at home. Midtown residents in 46205 or 46208 zip codes can order their free COVID-19 test kits online.
Each test package (4 kits; 8 tests total) supports home testing twice a week for four weeks for an individual. 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. The testing challenge lasts for at least a month, or until all tests are used.
Marion County residents can log on to COVIDhometestindy.org to order test kits for doorstep delivery. Test kits will also be available for pickup locally at the following locations:
- MCPHD Northeast District Health Office: 6042 E. 21st Street
- MCPHD Action Health Center: 2868 Pennsylvania Street
- MCPHD Northwest District Health Office: 6940 N. Michigan Road
