As the pandemic continues to surge across the nation, Hamilton County is working hard to make tests more accessible.
The county is teaming up with The Health Collaborative, five regional health systems and a regional university for their mission Test and Protect, which "aims to mitigate COVID-19 through rapid, efficient testing in those areas and organizations within Hamilton County that need it most."
The site outlines the schedule for dozens of testing sites that span across the county through Dec. 19.
Online pre-registration is not required, but is recommended to save time in line. Results are expected from the lab 2-3 days after test. If you've tested negative, you will receive an email with your results; if you've tested positive, a team member will call.
