Rapid COVID-19 screening events to be offered in Horace

HORACE, N.D. – The City of Horace and the Horace Rural Fire District are supporting free mass screening events using rapid antigen tests Fridays in March at the Fire Hall and Event Center in Horace.

The screening event will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. March 5,12,19, and 26 at 413 Main Street, Horace, ND 58047. The event is free to the public and children can be screened if accompanied by a legal guardian.

The screening, however, is for asymptomatic visitors only. If you are sick, DO NOT attend these events and isolate at home. Unless it is an emergency, ALWAYS call ahead before visiting your doctor.  

By screening with rapid antigen tests, event attendees will be able to receive their test results within 15 minutes via text notification. The test also is less invasive than a PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) test in that it uses a nasal swab to collect a sample from the lower part of the nostril.

If a person tests positive, they should isolate at home immediately and a case investigator will be in touch with them within 24 hours. If the screening yields a negative result, individuals should continue to monitor for symptoms. 

Interested individuals should fill out an online survey at testreg.nd.gov for faster registration.

North Dakotans should continue to follow #NDSmart guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19, including staying home when sick, staying six feet apart, avoiding large gatherings, washing your hands often, avoiding touching your face, wearing a mask and continuing to clean frequently touched surfaces.
