New! extended hours & Saturday testing
The Fort Hall Business Council has declared a state of emergency for the Fort Hall Reservation and activated the Emergency Operation Center (EOC), due to threat of the highly contagious COVID-19. To ensure the continued protection of public health and welfare and to reduce the risk of disease transmission and exposure of the COVID-19, the Council has implemented this mass COVID-19 screening for free to all residents of the Fort Hall Reservation (tribal and non-tribal) at the following locations/ dates/and times.
The screening will take place for a total of 8 weeks and those participating will need to take the screening weekly (doesn’t have to be at your district). This is not the deep nasal cavity test but a simple swab inside the nostril to determine if you are asymptomatic (a carrier of the COVID19).
