The most common symptoms for COVID-19  are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.   At the current time, if a person thinks they have symptoms, they should:

EITHER call their own provider OR call the nurse line at San Luis Valley Health at: (719) 589-2511 and press 9.  

Going to the clinic or hospital without calling ahead could expose more people to the virus, so please call first.

Persons can be tested only if ordered by a medical provider.

Your provider will probably make special arrangements if they suspect you have the coronavirus and want you to come in for testing, or for an appointment.
