East Palestine Library has at-home Covid-19 tests for Ohio residents. Call the library at 330-426-3778 to arrange curbside pickup. Please show your Ohio Driver's License when picking up a test.
Why is the library giving away free COVID-19 test kits?
The library is partnering with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to make these rapid testing kits widely available to the citizens of Ohio. The test kits provide access to testing for those who may not be able to get traditional testing because of work hours, mobility or transportation issues, or caregiving responsibilities.
How many test kits can customers get at a time?
The Ohio Department of Health purchased two million kits and wants the tests to be widely available. Please show your Ohio photo identification when picking up a test.
What if people need help with the tests?
Customers with questions about taking the test should contact eMed support at 844-943-0753. Questions about test results should be directed to their health care providers.
Does the library report any information about customers who request the test kits?
No. The Library does not collect any personal information and only reports the number of test kits we distribute.
Tests are available Monday through Thursday between 9:00 AM to 7:45 PM and Friday and Saturday between 9:00 AM and 4:45 PM. Call the library at 330-426-3778 to arrange contactless curbside pickup.
