The Library & test kits

The Library is working in partnership with the Ohio Department of Health to provide test kits to Clermont County residents. When the Library has kits, they may only be picked up using our no-contact curbside service or Bethel’s drive-thru window. The tests must be taken at home. Library staff members cannot assist guests beyond handing out the test kits. The number of test kits is limited to two per person.

If you have kits at home, please read this letter from Abbot, the manufacturer of the BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test, about the expiration dates being extended.
