Community testing, a cornerstone of the KDHE COVID-19 Testing Strategy, allows trusted organizations to provide testing to their communities in partnership with a KDHE contracted lab. Organizations may choose the program that best matches their own testing approach to maximize impact, either the Community Testing Partner or Volunteer Testing Program.
Community Testing Partners
Organizations, such as pharmacies, clinics, hospitals, EMS and local health departments can enroll as a Community Testing Partner to provide either PCR or antigen testing, processing and results to patients. Community Testing Partners will 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, symptoms or known contact.
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).
