Those who live or work in Johnson County, KS can schedule a free COVID-19 test at the Department of Health and Environment's Olathe location. Individuals should seek testing from their primary health care provider first before making an appointment. Supplies and appointment times are limited.

This is a drive-thru testing clinic. Remain in your vehicle for testing; do not enter the building.

The testing clinics are part of Johnson County's overall strategy to determine how prevalent COVID-19 is in Johnson County, Kansas.

COVID-19 testing appointments are in high demand and book quickly. You may check periodically to see if there are cancellations. We open new appointments for the following week on Thursday.

Test results are available within 5-7 business days. If the test is positive, you will receive a phone call at the number you provided when you scheduled your appointment. If the test result is negative, we can notify you of the result via email if you provide verbal consent. If you choose to not receive your negative results via email, you will receive a letter in the mail at the address you provided when you scheduled your appointment.
