Where to get free rapid antigen testing in Utah during week of Jan. 19

Coronavirus Updates

NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – NOVEMBER 12: Spc. Demetrie Barnett of the Nevada National Guard administers a COVID-19 test during a preview of a free drive-thru COVID-19 testing site in the parking garage of the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel on November 12, 2020 in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The site will open on November 13 amid increased demand for testing due to a surge in coronavirus cases in the state. Over the past two weeks, Nevada has averaged close to 1,000 new coronavirus cases per day, with a 13.7 percent test positivity rate. Clark County is partnering with the Southern Nevada Health District, Nevada National Guard, University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, city of North Las Vegas and Station Casinos, which owns the property, to open the site. Texas Station has been closed since mid-March because of the pandemic. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

UTAH (ABC4) – The Utah Department of Health is offering free rapid antigen testing at many locations throughout the state of Utah.

Officials say sites are chosen based on high positivity rates, fewer tests conducted, untreated wastewater sampling, and other surveillance data.

Some locations will be drive-through while others will be conducted in buildings. UDOH is encouraging everyone to continue to wear masks and social distance while waiting in lines.

Anyone older than 5-years-old can get tested at these free testing clinics, even if they do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Officials encourage anyone who might have any symptoms, even mild ones, to get tested.

You are asked to register online. If you do not, or are unable to register online, 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 are designed 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, according to UDOH. 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.
