The Respiratory Symptom Screening Clinic will open Monday, March 16, at 245 S. Fenway St. The temporary clinic will help screen, evaluate and treat respiratory symptoms while limiting local transmission of infectious illnesses, including influenza, RSV, COVID-19 and other illnesses.
The clinic will evaluate and treat cold, flu and other respiratory symptoms including:
- Sore throats
- Nasal congestion
- Chest congestion
The purpose is to limit local transmission of infectious diseases, including possible COVID-19 transmissions, by providing a screening alternative to the Wyoming Medical Center Emergency Room, local walk-in clinics, and physician offices. People who are experiencing respiratory symptoms, but are unsure whether they are suffering from the flu or other illness, can be evaluated at the Respiratory Symptom Screening Clinic.
- Patients will be spaced throughout the clinic to prevent transmission
- Patients and visitors will be asked to put on masks upon entering
- Providers will wear appropriate personal protective gear
- Drive-through triage availabe for non-mobile and other patients. Please call ahead to alert providers of your needs.
Please note that this clinic will not automatically provide COVID-19 testing upon request. The Centers for Disease Control advise doctors to use their best judgment when it comes to determining if someone should be tested for COVID-19. In Wyoming, we have limited test kits available, and we might not see that you meet the criteria to be tested. We want to ensure that our most vulnerable people – especially older adults who are at greatest risk for serious complications and death – are tested first. Please be aware that even if you are tested for COVID-19, you will not receive results for several days.
Remember: Testing for COVID-19 is not a medical emergency. If you have reason to believe you might have the virus, and are not experiencing difficulty breathing PLEASE CALL AHEAD: (307) 233-0291.
If after hours, and you are not in respiratory distress, self quarantine at home and wait until the clinic is open.
TELEHEALTH SCREENING FOR RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS
Telehealth hotline: 307-233-7288

To supplement the physical location of the new Respiratory Symptom Screening Clinic, we have set up a telehealth screening hotline for respiratory symptoms -- fever, cough, sore throats, nasal and chest congestion, and others.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, please call 307-233-7288 to be evaluated by a registered nurse. You will be asked several questions regarding your symptoms and COVID-19 screening history. The patient will then be able to set video telehealth appointments for treatment for respiratory illnesses, further education, or referral to the physical respiratory symptom screening clinic or another level of care.
Call 911 if you are experiencing respiratory distress.
