COVID-19 Testing

The Newburyport Health Department no longer has at-home test kits available for public distribution. If you were unable to get an at-home test kit due to lack of access to transportation, you are asked to call the Health Department at 978-465-4410 for assistance in getting test kits. 

To order your free at-home test kits from the federal government, please visit covidtests.gov.
