College students now eligible for COVID testing

JACKSON, Wyo. — As local college students prepare to head off to university for the fall semester, most institutions are requiring documentation of a negative COVID-19 test prior to returning to out-of-area campuses.

St. John’s has you covered.

In partnership with the Teton County Health Department, St. John’s Health has expanded COVID testing criteria to accommodate returning college and preparatory school students.

“We are grateful for the support of the Teton County Health Department to be able to meet this community need,” said St. John’s Health CEO Paul Beaupré, MD.

In order to participate, students must have Teton County, Wyoming resident identification and documentation of school testing requirements. Students whose educational institutions will be conducting their own tests (for example: University of Wyoming) are not eligible for the St. John’s testing program.

To schedule a test, call the COVID hotline at (307) 739-4898, ext. 3.

As always, you are the first line of defense against the coronavirus. Monitor your own symptoms frequently and know what to look for.
