Ipswich At-Home COVID Testing Program

Overview: At-Home Rapid Testing Program

  • About the Test: iHealth is a 15-minute at-home FDA-approved rapid antigen test
  • Weekly: Every two weeks you will receive an iHealth at-home rapid test kit. Each kit contains two individual tests. You will administer one test each week on Thursday evening. 
  • Easy, Free, and Flexible: This test is administered at home (not at school), reducing the burden on school staff and time to administer tests and increasing your flexibility to do testing in the home for free.


  • To participate, you must opt in by completing the online form. By opting in, you will agree to review the training materials for test administration, report positive test results, and administer the tests according to Ipswich Public Schools guidelines. 

Reporting Positive Test Results:

  • If you test positive on an at-home antigen test, you will report the positive result using the positive result notification link. The district will keep the results confidential and will not make individual results public. In addition, it is strongly recommended that you inform your healthcare professional of the positive result as well as reach out to out-of-school close contacts. Information on isolation and quarantine guidelines can be found in the notification form, as well as on the Department of Public Health website.
