Need a COVID-19 test before or after Thanksgiving? With more sites, Utahns have lots of options.

These state- and county-sponsored sites are offering free tests to Utahns before and during the holiday weekend.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) COVID-19 testing being done at a TestUtah site in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021.

Public health departments have added coronavirus testing sites in recent months, and wait times have drastically shortened since early fall — so Utahns have a number of options to get tested before they gather for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Since a surge in cases overwhelmed some of Utah’s testing sites in late August and early September, state-sponsored sites operated by the Utah Department of Health and Nomi Health have added staffing and a few locations. Salt Lake County has placed testing sites at some schools, and some districts have been operating their own test sites. And in November, the Kansas-based company NIC Inc. opened state-contracted testing sites in Iron, Washington and Salt Lake counties.

“We haven’t seen any decrease in demand,” said Tom Hudachko, UDOH spokesman. “If anything, there’s been an increase since early September.”

Utah has been averaging 18,000 to 19,000 tests per day in November, with the percentage of positive tests between 16% and 18%.

Rapid antigen tests, which produce results within an hour but are less sensitive than lab-processed PCR tests, have made up an increasing share of those tests — most days, they are around half of the tests administered.

Here are state- and county-sponsored sites in Utah that are offering free tests to Utahns before and during this week’s Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
