For Immediate Release
December 19, 2022, Jackson, WY- Beginning December 29, 2022, the Curative COVID-19 testing site in Teton County, WY will be closed.
Teton County Health Department Director, Jodie Pond, MPH, stated, “We have been very fortunate to have the Curative testing sites throughout the pandemic thanks to our partnership with the Wyoming Department of Health, St John’s Health, Teton County Library, Teton County, and the Town of Jackson. These sites have ensured that community members had access to no-cost COVID-19 testing since December 2020.”
Testing is one of the best tools to prevent the spread of COVID-19, alongside getting vaccinated and boosted. Going forward there are still many locations where COVID-19 testing is available.
Individuals can order 4 free antigen COVID-19 tests by mail at www.covidtests.gov. There is a limit of one order per residential address.
COVID-19 antigen tests are available for purchase at local pharmacies, such as Smith’s, Albertsons, and Blackburn Drug. Prices of these tests vary from location to location. Individuals can submit a receipt to their insurance for possible reimbursement.
Albertson’s pharmacy also has on-site molecular testing by appointment for $69, for healthy, non-symptomatic individuals for travel. Results are received within 20 minutes.
Contact your primary care provider for COVID-19 testing.
If you don't have a primary care provider, St. John’s Urgent Care has COVID-19 testing for individuals who have symptoms. Testing at this location also requires an office or telehealth visit. St. John’s Urgent Care does not perform travel testing or testing for individuals exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
If you test positive and are at risk of severe illness from COVID-19, treatments are available that can reduce your chances of being hospitalized or dying from the disease. Contact your healthcare provider for an assessment to determine whether you are eligible for the medication.
