COVID-19 Surveillance Testing

Background

The Teton County Health Department in partnership with St. John’s Health will be conducting COVID-19 surveillance testing using Curative SARS-CoV-2 assay, an oral swab that tests for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in oral fluids/saliva.  The Curative test has an accuracy rate of 90%.  The surveillance testing will be free and is completely voluntary.  We will be randomly testing up to 1,000 workers from businesses that participate. Employees will only be considered if their employer enrolls in this surveillance testing program. This surveillance testing will be provided at no cost to the business or to the employees in thanks to funding provided by the Wyoming Department of Health through the CARES funding.    

What Sectors are Included

The Teton County Health Department will begin surveillance testing with sectors that have direct interactions with visitors, provide care to vulnerable populations in our community, or work in communal living environments.  Our next phase will be sectors that have direct interaction and prolonged contact with residents or work in confined quarters.
