Laboratory testing and cases of COVID-19 are no longer reportable to KDHE or your local health department; however, clusters or outbreaks remain reportable, and testing partners should continue to send COVID-19 results. Read on...
Community testing, a cornerstone of the KDHE COVID-19 Testing Strategy, allows trusted organizations to provide testing to their communities in partnership with KDHE and KDHE contracted labs.
Community Testing Partners
Organizations, such as pharmacies, clinics, hospitals, EMS and local health departments have enrolled as Community Testing Partners to provide testing for Kansans. Community Testing Partners receive a fee for all eligible tests conducted to offset personnel and administration costs. Testing must be provided free of charge and without requirement of ID, insurance, symptoms or known contact.
The CTP Program offers Community Testing Partners rapid antigen tests, as supplies are available. CTP sites may also provide PCR testing in partnership with KDHE contracted labs. Contact the KDHE team with any questions.
Volunteer Testing partners are supported with free testing kits, transportation and results. Volunteer program participants are not required to meet all criteria for Community Testing Partners and they do not receive a fee for testing. Download the Volunteer Testing Program Packet (PDF).
