Currently, there is a nationwide shortage in rapid COVID-19 tests. Although this rapid testing shortage is also affecting our facilities, we want to ensure our community that we have adequate resources and testing supplies to test for COVID-19. However, please be patient as you may not receive the results as quickly as previously when rapid COVID-19 tests were in adequate supply.

We strive to do our best in prioritizing patients based on their presenting symptoms and exposure concerns to COVID-19. If you are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed, please contact your primary healthcare provider. If you have any other questions please feel free to call Delaware County Public Health at 563-927-7551.
