SUMMIT COUNTY — On Wednesday, August 3, Curative announced the arrival of their Rapid PCR tests at the Summit County Health Department COVID testing site. The site is open to the general public, and appointments can be made in advance.
Curative’s Rapid PCR test takes two hours to produce a result. A non-rapid PCR test typically takes between 24 to 48 hours.
“We are still offering Lab PCR tests at no cost to all patients regardless of insurance status,” said Pasquale Gianni, Senior Communications Manager for Curative. “Rapid PCR testing is available at no out-of-pocket cost to patients with insurance and via self-pay for patients without active insurance.”
The testing site is located at 650 Round Valley Drive in Park City and offers walk-up testing from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Currently, Summit County is listed as medium risk according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Those at high risk for severe illness should consult with a healthcare provider about what precautions should be taken. The CDC also recommends getting tested if you are feeling any symptoms.
