SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – The Utah Department of Health is continuing to offer free rapid antigen testing in many locations across the state.

UDOH says new sites are targeted each week based on high positivity rates, fewer tests conducted, untreated wastewater sampling, and other surveillance data. Some locations are drive-through while others are conducted in buildings.

Everyone visiting a testing site is encouraged to wear masks and social distance while waiting in lines.

Anyone older than the age of 5 can get tested a these free clinics, with or without symptoms of COVID-19. According to UDOH, anyone who has any symptoms, even mild ones, should come and get tested.

Before arriving at the site, UDOH asks that you register online. If you don’t, or are unable to, you will be able to register at the site, but it will take longer for you to be tested. Identification may be required.

These testing clinics aim to more quickly identify people who are currently infectious with COVID-19, including those who may not even know they are infected because they don’t have symptoms.

Identifying these individuals will help slow the spread of infection in the community.

Rapid antigen tests are less sensitive than PCR tests. This means PCR tests are better than antigen tests at detecting the virus, particularly when a person has small amounts of virus in their body. If an individual has symptoms and tests negative on the rapid antigen test or an individual doesn’t have symptoms and tests positive on the rapid antigen test, they will be referred for a follow up, confirmation PCR test.
