In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health and Human Services has launched its at-home testing initiative with a goal of using fast, free, and convenient testing to control the spread of COVID-19.
Below are details about the various partners we are working with to make testing available, as well as information for employers who are interested in initiating testing programs.
Free rapid at-home test kits are available at locations throughout the state such as Local Health Departments (LHDs), public libraries, and other community partners.
Getting a kit and taking an at-home test is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3.
When taking the at-home test, you have two options. Help with the test is available via a virtually-guided, telehealth session or you can choose to take the test yourself without a guided session.
To locate facilities near you, reach out to your physician's office or contact your local health department. For additional information on testing or vaccines, contact the Nebraska COVID-19 Information Line at (531) 249-1873 or toll free at (833) 998-2275. The Nebraska COVID-19 Information line is available daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Relay calls for deaf and hard of hearing and Language Line access are available at the numbers above. Nebraska is committed to ensuring that residents with disabilities are able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, no matter where in the state they live.
