COVID-19 Community Testing Events

September 17, 2020

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners unanimously approved up to $3,037,696 in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding for community testing and case investigation/contact tracing.  Funds approval came in the form of the County’s $1,937,696 million Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) for testing and case investigation through Nov.30, 2020; and a separate $1.1 million contract with STRIDE Community Health Center to administer COVID-19 testing via mobile unit starting Sept. 1, 2020 – Dec. 30, 2020.

STRIDE and Douglas County will offer mobile testing in Douglas County from Sept. 1 through Dec. 30, 2020.

COVID-19 swabbing and antibody testing are available to individuals with or without health insurance and there will be no charge to individuals for testing.

Swab testing is available for individuals with COVID-19 symptoms or direct exposure to someone with symptoms. Testing is also available to those who are asymptomatic and employed at a healthcare facility, nursing home, or a member of emergency services (police, fire, EMS), reside in or are being admitted to a congregate (shared) living facility, attend a school that is requiring testing, or are planning to travel or visit a hospital and meet criteria for testing.

Antibody testing is available to individuals who have been symptom-free for 14 days.

For those who want to be tested at a STRIDE event AND have private health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, please bring your insurance card with you, as STRIDE will attempt to bill your insurance carrier for the test. Individuals without insurance are also welcome. No individual coming for testing will be charged a fee at the time of the test, nor will they receive a bill from STRIDE for services.  For questions email [email protected]
