Effective 11/29/2021, KDHE will no longer fund the cost of tests that are processed by commercial or university labs for LHDs. However, KDHE will continue to process PCR tests free of cost through KHEL. To receive free testing, LHDs will need to request QuikSal test kits and/or other supplies from KHEL and ship tests to KHEL for processing. KHEL can also process NP and OP collections if these methods are utilized. A courier must be arranged to pick up samples directly from the pick-up location determined between KDHE and the LHD.
