As the State’s response to COVID-19 has evolved, we have opened testing to individuals with symptoms, to individuals who have been in close contact with a known positive individual, and to targeted asymptomatic groups.(click to learn more)

One of the State’s targeted asymptomatic groups is first responders that have had high-risk exposures.  For this targeted group, a first responder is an employee who responds to 911 calls and treats or transports people in crisis or medical situations (police officer, firefighter, EMT, paramedic, or dispatcher).  A high-risk exposure means having direct contact with infectious secretions (cough, sneeze, or saliva) or an aerosol-generating procedure (intubation, BVM use, nebulized medications, or CPAP) of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or of someone whose COVID-19 status was not known.

We have created a survey that will generate a testing referral for first responders that have had high-risk exposures.  The survey asks questions that will identify high-risk exposures and will generate a referral that will be sent by text and/or email to the individual.  

We ask that you share the following link with your employees that are first responders so they can obtain a referral for testing when they have a high-risk exposure:

 

The UFRA organization contributes to the safety and security of Utah residents by training fire service emergency responders, creating and maintaining programs and courses related to fire service emergency response, assisting in the development of current and future fire department leaders, and maintaining a certification program that insures a high degree of professionalism in all disciplines of the fire service.
