Gunnison Valley Health, with the support of Gunnison County Health and
Human Services, will be resuming free COVID testing next week. Beginning
on Monday, July 12, appointments for testing will be available between
8:45 and 9:30 a.m.
For individuals requiring testing for surgeries: Contact the Gunnison Valley Health Admissions department to schedule
testing. You will need to know ahead of time if a rapid NAAT test or a
send-out PCR test is required by your surgeon. When you have that information,
please call 970-642-4766. Also, understand that this is a screening test,
which will be billed through your insurance, just like any other pre-surgical lab work.
For all other community members requiring testing: Contact Health and Human Services staff at 970-641-3244. Staff will work
with you to schedule and answer questions or provide information as needed.
All testing will occur at the testing site located in the parking lot of
the Gunnison Valley Health hospital. The testing that occurs will be the
same PCR testing through COVID Check Colorado, in partnership with the
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), that has
been happening for quite some time.
We are thrilled to be able to continue to meet this important need for
the community and are grateful for the continued support from Joni Reynolds
and her team.
We appreciate the patience of the community as we get this interim solution
in place and the community moves to a permanent solution for COVID testing.
