BinaxNOW Rapid Tests Available

BinaxNOW test kits may be distributed directly to ICFs/Providers. These tests are provided to DODD by the Ohio Department of Health for redistribution and are available while supplies last.

Basics of the BinaxNOW Rapid Testing Initiative

  • These tests are free of charge
  • This is not for surveillance testing
  • These tests are for determining if symptomatic residents or employees are positive for COVID-19
  • Must have a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Waiver to use these tests
  • There are reporting requirements to use these tests

Process of requesting tests and information needed

ICFs/Providers should contact their DODD Statewide Support Team Representative to request tests. The DODD Support representative will facilitate shipments of tests directly to the ICF/provider. Direct shipments will come via UPS.

Information the Support Representative will need to process the request:

  • Does the facility have a CLIA certification and understand that there are reporting requirements?
  • Number of test kits requested (one kit contains 40 individual tests)
  • County facility is located within
  • Facility name
  • Shipping contact name
  • Shipping address
  • Shipping contact e-mail
  • Shipping contact phone number

Please contact with questions.
