Nez Perce Tribe plans to offer mass COVID-19 testing Monday

The Nimiipuu Health Clinic in Lapwai will conduct tests for COVID-19 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday at its office at 111 Bever Grade.

Testing will be available for any enrolled NMPH patients or any employee of a Nez Perce Tribe entity.

The testing session is in response to a rise of COVID-19 cases at Nimiipuu Health, where 20 people have tested positive.

Testing will be conducted in a drive-through format. For people without symptoms, they’ll be tested with a swab in the back of the NMPH parking lot. Those with symptoms will be rerouted into a parking spot and tested with an Abbott ID NOW analyzer.

People who come to NMPH for COVID-19 testing won’t be allowed into the building, unless directed to enter by the staff. Those coming to NMPH for a regular appointment will still be permitted in the building. (Lewiston Tribune)
