IMPORTANT UPDATE - Submitting case information on your phone
If you tested positive and provided a cellular phone number, you may receive a text message from CCHD containing a link to a web form. We encourage you to click the link and complete the form -- it helps us record valuable information, such as where you might have gotten sick.
Why are we doing this? Recording epidemiological information is an important part of investigating every case. Earlier in the pandemic, CCHD had numerous temporary staff who made dozens or hundreds of phone calls every day to gather this information. Automating a large part of the case investigation allows us to keep recording this essential information with more limited staffing. It's also easier for you!
The web form is entirely confidential, secure, and HIPAA-compliant. Please only provide your information through the linked form - do not share personal information by responding directly to the text message.
Please call 406-454-6950 if you have any questions!
COVID-19 LOCAL CASE UPDATES
CCHD posts monthly updates on Cascade County communicable disease cases, including COVID-19, on the first Tuesday of every month. Click here!
COVID-19 immunizations are provided at CCHD by appointment every Tuesday-Friday. CCHD also holds several drive-through and walk-in clinics each fall and winter, where both COVID-19 and influenza immunizations are offered - no appointment needed!
If you have travel plans, you may get a rapid PCR test at CCHD to help limit the spread! PCR testing is available for all travelers, even if a test is not required by the destination country or jurisdiction, and even if you are only traveling within Montana.
PCR tests are more accurate and reliable than home test kits. Results are typically available approximately 15 minutes after testing.
Please call 406-454-6950 to make an appointment for travel testing. There is a $60.00 charge for a PCR test.
