Ida Rupp Libraries is joining over 100 Ohio public libraries in distributing free COVID-19 test kits while supplies last. Provided by the Ohio Department of Health, the 15-minute Abbott BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Test is for at-home COVID-19 testing only, in conjunction with a free telehealth session provided by eMed proctors.

While the test is free of charge, you will need Internet access and one of the following devices with a camera and microphone:

  • A computer

  • A tablet

  • A smartphone

  • Binax home testkit

Customer questions specifically about the testing process can be answered by calling eMed Customer Support at 844-943-0061. Due to the medical nature of the tests and quarantine safety requirements, library staff cannot assist with using the test kit.
