Leveraging TestNebraska’s infrastructure, Nebraska is scaling widespread COVID-19 testing
Superior, Ne – Today, we are announcing a partnership with the State of Nebraska to provide free COVID-19 testing to eligible residents. Residents of Nebraska can take an online assessment through the TestNebraska portal, and if eligible receive a free test from our hospital.
From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nebraskans have been asking for more widespread access to testing. The State’s partnership with Nomi Health provides our hospital with access to a preexisting supply chain of testing that works, project management, and clinical expertise in collaboration with our hospital staff to get the job done. Our hospital and public health systems across the state needed immediate access to scarce resources, high-quality testing equipment, an efficient process, which this partnership delivers.
“We’re happy to bring forward new opportunities for testing to our region and expect this partnership to improve testing capabilities far into the future. We encourage area residents to take the online assessment and if needed schedule for future testing.” –Treg Vyzourek, CEO
Brodstone has released three testing dates for the month of July. Nebraska residents can take an online assessment at testnebraska.com in order to see if they are eligible for testing. If eligible, the resident will select an appointment date, time and location. In addition, they will receive an email with a QR Code that will needed upon arrival to the appointment, along with a form of identification.
Those that present on testing day will enter off of Highway 14 (near Superior Family Medical Clinic) heading east towards Washington Street. Directional and informational signage will direct them through the traveling route to testing. All testing is done in your vehicle. Pre-registration and appointments through the TestNebraska portal are required for testing. The following dates and times for testing have been announced.
