The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is offering COVID-19 PCR testing at kiosks placed in communities across the state.

 

According to a press release from the DPH, most of the kiosks offer COVID-19 testing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

Pre-registration for testing at the kiosks is not required, but available at https://register.testandgo.com/.

 

After completing a brief registration form, the kiosks will dispense a test kit much like other at-home tests.  Once the specimen is collected, it is safely packaged back into the kit and placed in the kiosk.

 

The specimens are picked up daily and sent to an accredited lab for PCR testing.

 

There is no out-of-pocket cost for the tests provided through a DPH kiosk, but for those individuals with insurance, their insurance will be billed for the test.

 

Individuals will receive notification of their test results by email or text within 48 hours of collection. 

 

A map of kiosk locations and a short video about using the kiosks can be found at https://dph.georgia.gov/covidtesting.
