If you are symptomatic, but otherwise ok, please self-isolate and self-report at www.gunnisoncounty.org/covid19
If you are symptomatic and worsening, please call the call center. 970-641-7660
We ask that you not show up to the screening site until you call first.
If it is an emergency, never hesitate to call 911.

Gunnison Health and Human Services Facebook page
The screening site hours will be from 10-12 each day it is in operation. The schedule has changed so that The Gunnison site will operate on Monday and Friday each week.
The Crested Butte site will begin operations in the Lodge at Mountaineer Square parking garage on Tuesday and Thursday each week.
Again, do not show up to the site unannounced. Please call the call center prior to going to the screening site.
Be a good neighbor
One of our concerns is if we are reaching the folks that aren’t as inclined to the internet and other digital information sources. We are working with the radio to try and establish more lines of communication. Please, call your neighbors and make sure they have the most up to date information.
By the Numbers
As of 4:58 PM, we have 18 positive, 21 negative, and 77 pending tests. This document will be updated live with information.
As of 5:07 PM we have 403 English and only 2 Spanish self-reporting forms filled out. If you have friends in the Spanish speaking community please share that there is a Spanish self-reporting form on our website. Immigrant populations do have access to the call center and screening site as they do for other community services including Health and Human Services and Gunnison Valley Health.
Special Shopping Hours for 60+
Most stores are operating early morning hours for those that are 60+. The reason for this is that this allows crews to clean the store overnight and those at risk populations can shop before the rest of the general public has come into the facility.
Walmart: Starting on Tues, March 24th, Walmart will be dedicating 6:00am-7:00am hours to age 60+ every Tuesday.
Safeway will be allowing shopping for the elderly, immunocompromised, pregnant, and other people with health conditions on Tuesday and Thursday 7:00am-9:00am.
Clark’s Market in Crested Butte has Senior Shopping Hours from 8:00am-9:00am each day for residents 60+ years of age.
City Market: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:00am-8:00am is available for anyone 60+.
