Testing is Still a Critical Component to Fighting COVID-19

chaley featured-news

(Salt Lake City, UT) – The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) continues to offer free rapid antigen testing at many locations throughout the state of Utah. And that testing comes with a reminder about how important testing still is in this response.

Reasons to get tested.

1.      You have symptoms. If you do test positive, you should isolate. Stay home except to get medical care. Visit https://coronavirus.utah.gov/protect-yourself/ for more information.

2.      You’ve been in close contact with someone who tests positive.

3.      Some employers may require a negative test before you return to work.

4.      Many hospitals are again offering elective surgeries and you may need to be tested for COVID before you have the procedure.

5.      Travel restrictions are different in various parts of the world and you may need proof of a negative test before traveling.

6.      The pandemic isn’t over yet. In fact, now that new variants are circulating and some are even more transmissible, finding out if you’re positive and isolating can prevent you from exposing others.

The following testing sites are offered this week throughout Utah. 

All of these testing sites are now able to offer testing to children ages three and older.
