Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health
At-Home COVID-19 Tests
BBPH has home COVID-19 tests available for pickup, just inside the north entrance of our office at 500 East Front Avenue, while supplies last. These test kits have no out-of-pocket cost. Supplies are limited to 2 tests per person, but individuals may pick up tests for their entire household.
Please note that on March 29, 2022, the FDA granted a 3-month shelf-life extension for the iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test. This means if the expiration date on the back of the box is 2022-06-27, the new expiration date for the test is 2022-09-27.
The North Dakota Department of Health has free COVID-19 at-home test kits available, if your organization would like to become a community distribution site. Contact Katheryne Korom at (701) 204-5746 for more information. Interested organizations are required to be listed on the NDDOH website as a distribution site and must complete a distribution site questionnaire. Once approved, organizations can order test kits directly through the North Dakota HAN Assets Catalog. Public distribution volume is 2 tests (1 box) per person.
