MONTROSE, Colo. — As more questions arise surrounding the presence of COVID-19 on the Western Slope, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has selected Montrose County for a surveillance site to collect coronavirus testing data.
The Colorado National Guard has been enlisted to help with the testing.
Tests will be conducted Monday, March 23, at the Montrose County Event Center.
One hundred county residents are being carefully selected to be tested based on various risk factors, symptoms, and state requirements.
Local providers and public health experts are coordinating in the selection process.
It’s important to note: you may not request the test in person at the testing site, as everyone needs to be pre-screened. Please contact your primary care provider to be pre-screened if you are experiencing symptoms.
