Free COVID-19 Rapid Testing Continues for all Summit County Businesses and Employees through April 15

Access to free testing has helped hundreds of employees return to work keeping Summit County businesses open

 

PARK CITY, UTAH (March 1, 2021) – Since its launch on January 4, the Summit County Small Business COVID-19 Rapid Testing Program has helped 436 quarantined local employees to safely return to work and allowed businesses to stay open while keeping their employees and patrons safe. The program will continue through April 15, to help all Summit County business owners and employees safely weather the COVID-19 storm. Testing is free of charge after scheduling an appointment with County Health Department staff.

 

Current State of Utah guidelines allow individuals who are quarantined due to a workplace COVID-19 exposure to return to work on day seven of quarantine if they are asymptomatic and have a negative rapid COVID-19 test. Previously, accessing rapid testing was both problematic and costly for business and employees. This program provides Summit County businesses and employees access to free rapid testing to help employees who are not infected with the virus to return to work sooner and keep local businesses open.

 

All Summit County Businesses and their employees are eligible for the testing program regardless of where in the County they are located; a business does not need to be a member of any business association to participate. The Summit County Small Business COVID-19 Rapid Testing Program has been made possible through a partnership between Summit County, Park City Municipal, People’s Health Clinic, and the Park City Chamber of Commerce.

 

For more information about the program and how to get tested, please call 435-333-1546, or visit summitcountyhealth.org
