Chaffee County Public Health and Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center have announced the second of two, free testing clinics this week: the next one is scheduled for Wednesday, July 8 from 10 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
Testing is by appointment only. Appointments must be scheduled by close of business, the day before the testing clinic will be held. Criteria for testing includes
- Any community member (or others who consider Chaffee County their medical home) who is showing symptoms
- Any asymptomatic patient who has a known contact with a positive case, has traveled in an area with high rates of transmission or has a concern that they may have been exposed.
- All healthcare workers, first responders, senior care facility workers, and essential workers who directly interact with the public while working, whether or not those individuals have symptoms or not.
Those interested in being tested should call Public Health at 719-539-4510 to be screened and scheduled for testing. Those with severe respiratory symptoms should contact their primary care provider directly
