Nomi Health Manages 30 Percent Spike in Demand for Free COVID-19 Testing in Utah

OREM, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the positive rates of COVID-19 continue to increase in Utah, Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company coordinating COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts across the country, continues to effectively manage the state’s evolving testing demands. Since June 28th, Nomi has managed a 30 percent rise in COVID-19 testing demands across the site, including Provo and Draper. Nomi Health COVID-19 testing solutions are free and do not require any medical referral or presence of symptoms.

From the very beginning of the pandemic, Nomi has been a collaborative partner to the State of Utah providing quality, no-cost testing services to Utahns. Nomi also operates the largest mobile COVID response program in the state, with eight mobile units serving the hardest-hit and most remote communities.

​“A few alarming factors are contributing to the sharp increase in positive COVID cases in Utah: the end of universal mask mandates, the increased infectivity of the Delta variant and the Utah’s vaccination rate not reaching the level needed for herd immunity,” explained Dr. June Steely, Nomi Health Medical Director.

Dr. Steely offers these tips to stay safe and protecting your community:

  1. Get vaccinated – schedule an appointment, https://getmyshot.utah.gov/
  2. Continue to wear a mask while inside public places
  3. Be diligent about cleanliness including regular hand washing

To date, Nomi has completed 327,000 tests and more than 120,000 vaccines across the State, serving communities such as Utah State Prison, Ken’s Lake Campground and Wendover.
