Please self-report if you have any symptoms or have overcome your symptoms.
Importance of Self-Reporting
One of the best tools to provide early warnings of spread in the community is to self-report as symptomatic. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, even if they are mild, please self-report and isolate yourself.
Memorial Day Reminder
While Memorial Day traditionally serves as the unofficial start of summer, this year’s holiday weekend will be nontraditional on account of local and state measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please keep in mind that Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 23-Monday, May 25) falls before the conclusion of the most recently amended Public Health Order on Tuesday, May 26. Until then, travel within Gunnison County is restricted to “essential,” and visitors to Gunnison County are prohibited. As such, Gunnison County residents should also plan to stay local for Memorial Day. The state is restricting travel and many other counties are also prohibiting visitation.
We are now testing six days per week. Testing is still scheduled via the Call Center and is required to be tested.
The screening sites in Gunnison on Monday (10 a.m.-noon) and Crested Butte on Wednesday (10 a.m.-noon) will continue to operate. We have added testing by appointment in the GVH parking lot on Tuesday (9-10 a.m.), Thursday (9-10 a.m.), Friday (9-10 a.m.) and Saturday (9-10 a.m.).
Patients who contact the Call Center and are instructed to be swabbed will either be sent to a screening site or receive an appointment, depending on the day of the call. There will be 6-8 appointments available per scheduled day, with at least 2 appointments reserved for essential workers.
A primary goal of the new screening-site schedule is to provide NP-swab testing for COVID-19 to individuals within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.
