BOZEMAN, Mont. - Across the state, there is a high demand for at-home rapid COVID-19 tests. 

For people who are unable to find a rapid test at their local pharmacy, there are other testing options in Bozeman. 

Right now, all Gallatin County testing sites have a turnaround time of less than a day. 

Bozeman Health is still offering their COVID-19 testing Monday - Friday at their Deaconess Hospital campus in Lot H. 

Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, Bozeman Health has extended their testing hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

A full list of testing sites in Gallatin County can be found here. 

For people who have a difficult time accessing medical care, the health department has shifted from on-site testing locations to providing at-home testing kits. 

Gallatin City-County Health Officer, Lori Christenson said the county has a limited supply of at-home tests and they are working to get more tests for residents. 

More information about the Gallatin County at-home testing kits can be found here. 

The CDC announced new isolation guidelines for people who test positive for the virus and Gallatin County is also following that 5 day isolation period for their community members.

In order to return back to school or work, Gallatin County is not requiring people to show a negative test but if one does have access to a test the county is strongly encouraging them to take it to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
