Effective March 1, Southwest Health System’s drive-thru coronavirus testing center will have new hours.
The clinic will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The center is at SHS’s EMS building at the northwest section of the campus.
Tests are collected on-site and sent to a private lab or to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
Many insurance companies will cover the entire cost of the test, and results from the private lab are faster. Those without insurance can get the free test offered to anybody who wants it by the Montezuma County Department of Public Health. Those results take longer to get back since they have to be sent to the state.
Masks are required for all patients and visitors. SHS asks that individuals bring their own masks, but will provide one if needed.
