Where do I go if I have symptoms of the flu and COVID such as fever, coughing, shortness of breath?
If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911, or go to your nearest emergency room – calling ahead to wherever you’re receiving care to let them know what symptoms you are experiencing.
Where do I go to be tested for COVID-19?
What if I need to be tested for COVID when the lab is not open or what if I would like to be seen by a provider?
Our walk-in clinic is staffed M-F 8a-7p and Saturday 9a-5p. If symptoms warrant, the provider may give a flu and/or COVID test. Please call the walk-in at 970-564-1037 if you have illness symptoms include coughing, fever, and shortness of breath.
These tests are collected on-site and may be tested on-site or sent off to a private lab or CDPHE. Getting the COVID-19 test results may take several days. You will be informed how long it will take to get your results.
When collecting tests from symptomatic patients, we will come out to your car. Do not come inside. Once you’ve parked in one of the “Lab” parking spaces at the Emergency Room entrance, call 970-565-6666 to complete your registration.
