Testing is an important tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Anyone can get tested for COVID-19, including visitors to Vermont. People with or without symptoms can be tested at most testing locations. Testing is free to all. Make an appointment for your test. See list of sites below.

UPDATE: Health Department testing sites will close June 25. Vermonters are encouraged to pick up free take-home tests from these sites to keep at home and use if needed. Learn more.

Are you wondering about a test kit’s expiration date? Manufacturers periodically extend expiration dates on tests. You can confirm your Intrivo on/go test’s expiration date.

FIND TESTING LOCATIONS

WHEN SHOULD I GET TESTED?

  • As soon as possible if you have symptoms of COVID-19 ─ even if the symptoms are mild, and even if you previously had COVID-19.
  • If you are a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and you are not vaccinated or not up to date on your vaccines. Learn more about when close contacts should get tested.

REPORT YOUR RESULTS

If there is no option to automatically report your self-test result, please report results (positive or negative) to the Health Department using this online form, Vermont COVID-19 Self-Test Result Reporting Form

TEST TYPES

There are two types of tests that can tell you if you are infected at the time of the test — Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAAT) and antigen tests. A PCR test is needed if you are testing a child under age 2. Take-home LAMP and antigen tests are not approved for use in children under 2.

 

NUCLEIC ACID AMPLIFICATION TEST (NAAT)

ANTIGEN TEST
Examples Includes PCR and LAMP. Also known as molecular tests. Includes Quidel QuickVue and BinaxNOW.
How long for results Up to 3 days. Some are rapid (around 20 minutes). Most are rapid, around 15 minutes.
How the test works Detects genetic material (RNA) within the COVID-19 virus. Detects proteins (or antigens) on the surface of the COVID-19 virus.
