Shelby County residents can report COVID-19 tests at home online

Shelby County Health Department launched an online portal where residents can report test results.

SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. – The Shelby County Health Department created a way for residents who have used their COVID-19 test kit at home to report their results online Thursday.

An online link for submitting rapid test results (RTR) was created, which can also be accessed at the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 website.

“In order for us to continue to reduce the current number of cases, our residents must continue to test and isolate when test results return positive,” said Shelby County Health Director Dr. Michelle Taylor. “The availability of rapid test kits is helping with these endeavors, and this new web portal will allow residents to easily notify our health department of their home outcomes, whether they are positive or negative.”
