If you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing, fever, difficulty breathing, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain, chills, fatigue, congestion/runny nose, headache, or new loss of taste or smell, contact one of the Focused Testing and Screening Centers below.
Providers at these locations screen for symptoms and rule out other respiratory ailments, and will test at their discretion. Providers follow all appropriate CDC, state and local guidelines. Depending on available supplies, the provider may use risk factors such as age, travel history, and factors such as: sensitive occupations (with increased chance for exposure) to guide their testing decision.
Patients should follow instructions from providers regardless of whether a test was done and regardless of result outcomes, as this does not change the patient’s course of treatment.
On June 19, the Health Department released the Sentinel Testing Plan for testing of high-risk asymptomatic individuals will be conducted through a coordinated approach within the community. The County Testing Clinic will serve individuals that are not currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and have been in high-risk environments for exposure or transmission. The County criteria prioritizes health care workers and first responders, grocery store and service industry workers, personal care workers, individuals experiencing homelessness, daycare and preschool workers, camp staff and counselors, and County residents returning home to Montana.
***6/29/20 SENTINEL TESTING UPDATE: Due to a high volume of new cases and close contacts, the County Testing Clinic is prioritizing testing of symptomatic patients and their close contacts this week, June 29th, until further notice.***
