New Location for Drive-Thru COVID Testing at Cody Stampede Rodeo Grounds

Cody, Wyo.(October 7, 2020) – Cody Regional Health’s COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing site is relocating effectively tomorrow, October 8, 2020 and offering more tests and more hours due to a recent influx in COVID-19 testing demands.

The new drive-thru COVID-19 testing site will relocate from Cody Regional Health’s main West Park Hospital campus to the Cody Stampede Rodeo grounds located at 519 W Yellowstone Ave, Cody, WY 82414.

Drive-Thru testing will now be offered weekly on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00 AM. This testing is first come, first serve, and ends when allotted tests are gone.

Depending on what type of test supplies are available (and supply availability can change daily), test results may take up to 7 days to receive. Tests cost $25 per person by check, debit, or credit card. No cash, please.

“We have seen an increased demand in the community with rising numbers of exposures and increasing positive cases,” states Keith Ungrund, CCO at Cody Regional Health.

“CRH recognizes the value and importance of having the ability to access drive-thru testing as we are seeing some community members with mild symptoms not sick enough for the Walk-in Clinic or Emergency Room. Our staff recognizes the importance of this service and we would like to continue as long as feasible and based on available resources. We thank everyone for their patience as we do our best to navigate around this national pandemic,” states Doug McMillan, CEO at Cody Regional Health.

Patients experiencing COVID-19 symptoms including shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations or other more serious symptoms should go to the closest ER or call 9-1-1.
