Sublette County Public Health is excited to offer free COVID-19 saliva testing to all Sublette County residents over 60 years of age. Public Health has been offering this test during the last few months to essential workers and local businesses, and is happy to be able to expand the program to include residents who may be more at risk for severe complications from COVID-19 infections.
This testing is FREE and is completely voluntary. This is a saliva test that is completed by swabbing your own mouth under supervision from a medical professional. Drive-thru testing should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Results will be emailed/texted to participant, usually within 48-72 hours after testing is completed.
Public Health is conducting drive-thru testing at our Pinedale Office on Mondays 1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. and at the Marbleton Senior Center on Tuesdays 2 p.m.- 4 p.m. by appointment only. Please contact Joanie Christie @ 360-3125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and registration instructions.
Saliva testing is one tool used to identify people with extremely mild symptoms or those who do not have any symptoms (asymptomatic). It is an important step to keep our schools, community, and economy open. By identifying positive cases early, Public Health can quickly conduct contact tracing and determine all close contacts. In doing so, we can continue to stop the spread of COVID-19 by ensuring these people are isolated or quarantined.
This testing is for monitoring only – it is not for individuals who are sick. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please call the Sublette County Rural Health Care District to schedule testing for an active virus, or talk to a health care provider.
