[ARCHIVED] Covid-19 Testing and Treatment

Test Kits

You should get tested for COVID-19 especially if you have symptoms or were exposed to someone with COVID-19. Testing can also be useful if you are planning to attend any indoor gatherings.

At home test kits are available at:

  • Mill Creek Center; 106 S. Perry Street; Watkins Glen – Health Services Reception Desk
  • Human Services Complex; 323 Owego Street in Montour Falls – Main Door Security Desk

If your test comes back positive, click here for information on how to isolate and notify those you may have exposed.

Treatment options are available locally and we encourage you to discuss treatment with your doctor as soon as you test positive. Oral antiviral medication can lower the risk of hospitalization and death. More information on oral antiviral medications can be found here.
