Mobile Testing Sites Begin in Summit County

By 10:15am Saturday morning, at least 50 people had lined up in front of Park City High School for COVID-19 testing at a mobile unit set up by Intermountain Healthcare.  

Intermountain began mobile COVID-19 testing in Summit County Friday. A mobile unit will go to four sites in the county on four different days to give access to underserved populations and areas that are considered "hotspots" of increased COVID-19 positive tests, which include some apartment complexes in the Park City area.

The test sites are Park City High School's Dozier Field on Friday and Saturday.  Saturday's hours are 10am - 3pm. Kamas Library on Monday from 2pm - 7pm, Summit County Fair Grounds on Tuesday rom 2pm - 7pm, and Ecker Hill Park & Ride on Wednesday.  Hours have not been posted yet for Wednesday.  

The test is free, and according to the Summit County Health Department website, everyone who lives within a two-mile radius of the hotspot locations qualifies for testing as part of the high-risk population, even if they do not show any symptoms of COVID-19.

Other residents may visit the mobile testing site if they are currently experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, decreased sense of smell or taste, or sore throat.

You can be prescreened for COVID-19 by calling 844-442-5224.  If you have been prescreened, the health department says the actual test at the mobile testing site takes about five minutes.  If you are a walk-in patient, the entire process takes closer to 15 minutes.  All ages may be tested except for patients under two years old.  They must be evaluated by a physician. 

You will need to provide basic registration information, which is name, date of birth, address, phone number (for results), insurance if you have it, and a social security number if you have it.

You do not need insurance to have the prescreening or the COVID-19 test.

There are also other test sites in Summit County.  Intermountain Healthcare and the University of Utah have a testing site at the Park City Ice Rink, 600 Gillmor Way.  That site is open from noon to 6pm Saturday and Sunday, and 9am - 5pm Monday through Friday.   Healthcare workers ask that you get prescreened by calling the 844-442-5224 number first, but you may still show up without being prescreened if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

In Wasatch County, Intermountain Healthcare has a test site at the Heber InstaCare, 1485 S. Highway 40.  Hours are 9am - 5pm.  Workers there ask that you call the same COVID-19 hotline first before visiting, but will also test you if you have symptoms.

And there is a TestUtah.com site at 415 Southfield Road in Heber City.  You must complete an online assessment at www.testutah.com to determine if you need testing first.
