People wanting to be tested must have an appointment and must have the symptoms described within the past seven days.

Moffat County has had a total of six positive cases of COVID‐19, three of which have fully recovered. Routt County is reporting 52 positive cases and two deaths. Moffat County Public Health has also conducted surveillance testing throughout the county.

“We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to minimize the spread of COVID‐19 in Moffat County. Providing a way for symptomatic people to get tested, furthers our knowledge about the presence of this virus in our community,” said Kari Ladrow, Director of Public Health.
