OREM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In anticipation of the upcoming holidays and increased travel plans, Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company powering more effective care delivery and care payments, is operating two testing sites to support the “Test to Travel” program in partnership with the Utah Department of Health.
“From the very beginning of the pandemic, Nomi Health has been a collaborative partner to the State of Utah providing easy access to quality testing without any out-of-pocket cost to Utahns”
Activated last month, the locations at the Dixie Tech College, 610 S Tech Ridge Drive, in St. George and the Cannon Health Building, 288 N 1460 W, in Salt Lake City, have an exclusive “Test to Travel” lane to expedite the process for travelers. Utahns and other travelers coming through the state can receive the test that best suits their needs, as the sites provide rapid antigen, rapid PCR, and PCR tests. Testing is provided at no cost for Utah residents with ID and proof of travel.
The average wait time is 5 minutes or less to get tested. No appointment is required.

Nomi Health Medical Director Dr. June Steely shares the following tips to stay safe and healthy while traveling:
Wear a mask properly (cover your nose and mouth), as required.
Consider eating a meal prior to heading to the airport to avoid eating on site or in-flight, as unmasking to eat can increase risk of exposure.
Bring sanitizing wipes in your carry-on to regularly clean your hands and surroundings.
Nomi Health also operates the largest mobile COVID-19 response program in the state, with ten mobile units serving the hardest-hit and most remote communities. To date, Nomi Health has completed half a million tests and more than 140,000 vaccines across the State, serving communities from Washington County, Tooele to Utah County to Wendover.
