LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – Health agencies say one way to stay safe this holiday season is by getting your COVID-19 booster, another is through rapid tests. Those have been hard to find leading up to Thanksgiving.
Now, the Columbiana County Health District has them for free. They say it’s a responsible way to protect your loved ones at holiday gatherings.
“It’s a quick procedure. You register online, use your cell phone. It’s a proctored test. You use you cellphone and talk to somebody that is a medical professional. They walk you through the process. In just a few minutes, you have results,” said Laura Fauss, public information officer for the Columbiana County General Health District.
The free rapid tests are available at the health department daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but you are urged to call before you go.
The Columbiana County General Health District is closed on Thanksgiving Day.
