Tompkins County unveils self-reporting system for positive at-home COVID-19 tests

Tompkins County is rolling out a self-reporting system for people who test positive for COVID-19 using at-home test kits.


President Joe Biden recently announced that 500 million at-home tests will be sent out in the coming days. Tompkins County just received a shipment of 4,175 at-home tests, but says those will be used for local school districts.

Anyone who tests positive and self-reports will receive guidance from the Health Department. Those testing positive should isolate for ten days. The county says at-home tests should be taken by those without symptoms. If you have symptoms, you should take the PCR test.
