Guidance on Interpreting COVID-19 Test Results 

 Ohio Department of Health: Testing Guidance

At this time Butler County General Health District CANNOT do testing at our facilities. 
Individuals should call their healthcare provider ahead of time if experiencing symptoms (fever, coughing, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, new headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell). Symptoms may be mild or severe and may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. 

COVID-19 antibody test collections (blood draw) are available through LabCorp at all locations, including LabCorp at Walgreens locations. This type of COVID-19 test is for individuals who think they may have had COVID-19 and do not have symptoms. Note: antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude infection.

Click here to schedule an appointment for an antibody test ($10)


1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). 
Open 7 days a week from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. 
Call center staff includes licensed nurses and infectious disease experts. They will be available to answer questions and provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public, and the state’s response.
