People started lining up at 8 a.m. Thursday at the Teton County Fairgrounds, where the Teton County Health Department is holding a daylong community testing event for anyone who lives or works in Teton County, even if you aren’t showing symptoms of infection.
The health department is offering nasal swab testing, which is aimed at telling if people are actively infected, rather than antibody tests that indicate whether people had it at some point.
The Teton County Health Department asks that people bring proof of insurance if they have it, so insurance companies can be billed. For those without insurance, the department is offering vouchers to cover the cost of the test.
The event began at 9 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m.
As of 10 a.m., officials were anticipating an hourlong wait and are asking new arrivals to come back later in the day.
