Submitted by kylynn.james on Wed, 02/17/2021 - 14:40

The Utah Department of Health is continuing to offer free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing in communities across the state.  We are pleased to inform you that the next free COVID testing days for employees and members of our Nebo communities will be this Friday, February 19, from 2:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Free COVID testing is also planned for next Monday, February 22, and Friday, February 25, from 2:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Nebo School District's testing site is the Advanced Learning Center (ALC), located at 161 E. 400 N. in Salem, Utah.  The testing will be a mobile site, so individuals will stay in their vehicle to be tested.  Please pull to the west side of the block and enter the testing area through the west entry.  Signs will be posted to show you how to get to the testing site.  Testing will take place in the garage bay of the vehicle repair/woodshop building on the west side of the campus.  In order to receive your test, the state has requested that each person register before being tested.  The sign-up link is posted below:

Employees of Nebo School District and citizens from local communities can get tested at this free testing clinic, even if they do not have symptoms of COVID-19.  However, the Department of Health encourages anyone who might have any symptoms, even mild ones, to come and get tested. Online registration is encouraged to cut down on any potential delays at the testing site. If you can’t register online, you will be able to register at the site. Identification is required. 

The goal of this testing clinic is to 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. 

Test results will be emailed to those tested within 30-60 minutes after being tested. 

Testing teams will consist of Utah Department of Health staff, deployed National Guard members, and TestUtah contracted teams.

Thank you for all you do!
