[ARCHIVED] COVID Test Kits Available at Town Hall

Thanks to the Ulster County Legislator and Executive Pat Ryan the Town has received a limited supply of rapid at-home COVID-19 test kits. Each test kit includes two test per kit and are being provided at no cost to Town of Marlborough residents while supplies last. 

The at-home rapid test kits will be available for pick up starting Friday December 17th at the Town Hall. Residents can pick up their kits from 9am – 3pm starting Friday the 17th and the following week of December 20th until supplies last. You will need to show proof of Town of Marlborough residency (Example: Driver’s license, tax bill, electric bill)

Anyone coming into Town Hall to pick up your free rapid at-home test kit (one per household) must wear a mask and have No Flu like or COVID symptoms. We want our employees to stay safe and healthy this Holiday season and throughout the new year.

These at-home test kits are being made available ahead of time as another level of precaution before the holiday gatherings. While these tests aren’t 100% accurate, a negative result suggest that you’re not contagious at that particular time. If after receiving a negative result you have COVID like symptoms it is suggested you take another rapid test within 24 – 48 hours or that you contact your healthcare provider to schedule a PCR long test. 

What to do if you test positive with an at-home rapid COVID test:

Recipients of the free COVID-19 at-home rapid tests should follow the manufacturer’s instructions for administering the test. Anyone who tests positive should immediately isolate themselves from others. Consult with your healthcare provider about getting a PCR long test and the locations available to receive one.  

For questions, please call the Ulster County Recovery Service Center (RSC) at 845-443-8888

Ulster County will continue to hold regular vaccination PODs for residents who need to receive their 1st dose, 2nd dose, or booster dose. Appointments are recommended for the County’s vaccination PODs; although walk-ins will be accommodated as capacity allows. Sign up for an appointment at VaccinateUlster.com.
