Free COVID-19 Saliva Testing for Sublette seniors
by Sublette County Public Health
October 29, 2020

Sublette County Public Health is excited to offer free COVID-19 Saliva Testing to ALL Sublette County residents over 60 years of age. We started this testing over the last few months for essential workers and local businesses. Public Health is happy to be able to open testing opportunities at this time to include residents that 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 1pm-–4:30pm and at the Marbleton Senior Center on Tuesdays 2pm-4pm by appointment only. Please contact Joanie Christie at 307-360-3125 or email for more information and registration instructions.

Saliva testing is one tool we can use 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—this testing is not for individuals that are sick. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please call the Sublette County Rural Health Care District to schedule testing or talk to a health care provider.
