Getting tested for COVID-19 is the best and most reliable way to determine if you’re infected. There are a variety of options for tests throughout the Johnson County community, including testing sites and at-home test kits.
The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment encourages you to get tested if you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus or have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, and to follow proper guidelines to avoid infecting others if you test positive. Learn more about testing options available and how you can report your results.
