In response to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Summit County, Intermountain Healthcare and University of Utah Health have joined together to provide additional resources for curbside COVID-19 testing at the Park City Ice Arena.
The site, located at 600 Gilmore Way, offers both screening assessment and testing without a physician’s order and is available to everyone with or without health insurance. Hours are from Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 pm.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to join together with University of Utah Health to bring increased COVID-19 resources to the Summit County community that has been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 virus. The Ice Arena site provides easy access for cars and a smooth flow of traffic, which are important as the need for testing increases,” said Rebekah Couper-Noles, VP for medical group operations at Intermountain Healthcare.
Individuals are encouraged to call ahead so a medical professional can assess your symptoms over the phone and determine if you should be tested for COVID-19. Calling ahead is not required for testing but doing so may save you time and help our team of caregivers prepare for your visit.
“It’s essential right now to work together to support the urgent needs of communities throughout Utah. The partnership with Intermountain Healthcare will allow us to test more individuals with COVID-19 symptoms in an area showing higher levels of community spread. We are committed to testing as many individuals as possible to help control and stop the spread of COVID-19,” says Richard Orlandi, MD, chief medical officer for ambulatory health at University of Utah Health.
For more information about COVID-19, Intermountain and University of Utah Health offer a variety of resources.
