Horizon Health Care has announced that they are now able to offer point-of-care (POC) or in-house Coronavirus testing. The increased access to POC testing through purchase of testing kits has been made possible by a combination of Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Expanded Testing Capacity Grant funds, as well as generous donations to Horizon Health Foundation’s Coronavirus Relief Fund.

These test kits allow Horizon to test and immediately get results to a patient to determine if the patient has COVID-19. These test kits are designed for patients who have COVID-19 symptoms and are within the first five days of displaying symptoms. If patients are past the five-day window, POC testing will not be an option.
