Vernal, UT May 21, 2021 – TriCounty Health Department (TCHD) will begin offering free COVID-19 testing May 24, 2021. The Vernal office will have weekly testing Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am-11am. The Roosevelt office will have testing Monday and Wednesday from 8am-11am.
“The best way for people to have the tests they need is for public health to offer a free option,” Health Officer Kirk Benge said. “We would like to see a decline in cases of COVID-19. The Uintah Basin is experiencing more cases. In public health our concern is for the prevention of illness and sustaining a healthy community, offering free COVID-19 testing alongside our vaccines helps us to provide health and prevention to those who choose to get vaccinated and those who don’t.”
Those who need a test for COVID-19 can drive into the parking lot in Roosevelt (409 S 200 E) and park in the designated parking spots on the west side of the building Monday and Wednesday from 8am-11am.
