At-Home/Over the Counter COVID-19 Testing

At-home COVID-19 test results, where both specimen collection and testing are conducted at home, are not recorded or reported to public health for the purpose of public health surveillance. 

  • Negative at-home test results do not meet criteria to exempt or shorten quarantine periods for a close contact, release someone from isolation, to enter or return to the US from an international location. 
  • Positive at-home test results: CDC recommends that individuals talk to their health care provider and seek re-testing using a laboratory-based test (e.g., RT-PCR). 
    • If a student/school staff person tests positive by at-home test, they should retest through the school or get a lab-based test; if they have symptoms, they should still isolate for 10 days per the COVID-19 Exclusion Criteria for Schools.
    • Other persons testing positive by at-home testing should quarantine/isolate at home for 10 days and inform close contacts to quarantine. Get retested with a lab test and see your healthcare provider if symptoms develop.

Obtaining Your Test Results

Please refer to the paperwork given to you at your chosen COVID-19 Testing Site location for the most up-to-date information on receiving your test results. The Peoria City/County Health Department does not receive direct test results.

To ensure you receive your test results as soon as possible, make sure your phone number and contact information is up-to-date when completing your paperwork at your chosen COVID-19 Testing Site location. 

What to Bring With You

Some COVID-19 Testing Site Locations may require different information from you when you arrive for your test. Visit your chosen Testing Site's website or call for more information ahead of time to ensure you have all of the necessary information with you when you arrive.

The Peoria City/County Health Department recommends bringing the following with you for your test:

  • Driver's License or identification
  • Insurance Card (if you have one)
  • Your smartphone or cellular device with the most updated version of MyChart installed. OSF HealthCare, UnityPoint Health, and all Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) testing site locations will send you your test results via MyChart, and some IDPH locations may require you to use MyChart to complete your paperwork before testing.
  • Your own pen to complete any handwritten portions of the required paperwork
