Curative COVID-19 Kiosks in Teton County, WY will be Used for Contact Tracing Efforts and Surveillance Testing
Teton County Health Department has partnered with the Wyoming Department of Health and Curative to bring two COVID-19 testing kiosks to Teton County, WY. These kiosks will be used to assist Teton County Health Department in their contact tracing efforts for COVID-19 along with providing surveillance testing for local businesses. The testing kiosks will be located at Teton Village and in the Town of Jackson. Curative’s observed and directed, self-collected oral fluid PCR COVID-19 test is painless and delivers results within 24-48 hours.
Teton County will be able to double its testing capacity on the Curative platform through this effort. Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms, those who may have been close contacts of COVID-19 cases, and employees of local businesses will be able to take advantage of this enhanced testing program. The Teton County Health Department will make available information on how to register for an appointment at one of the new testing kiosks.
The Director of Health, Jodie Pond, MPH stated, “We are very excited to have the support from the Wyoming Department of Health to continue to expand COVID-19 testing for Teton County residents and workers. These new testing sites will allow us to test up to 1,200 people each week and we hope that the kiosk in the Town of Jackson will be open the second week of December.”
