SJBPH’s CV-19 community testing site updates hours of operation


San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) updated its COVID-19 Community Testing Site hours of operation, effective Wednesday, Nov. 4. The new hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays, 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. The testing site closes promptly at 4:30 p.m., so it is recommended that those needing testing arrive as early as possible.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or those who believe they may have been exposed either through known contact or general community interaction should get tested at SJBPH’s free community testing site. No appointment is needed.

With the importance of testing in fighting the spread of the virus, SJBPH wants to make it as convenient and accessible as possible for everyone and will continue to work to expand COVID-19 testing options in our community.

SJBPH understands how challenging the COVID-19 pandemic is for everyone, and agency staff sincerely appreciate the efforts of all community members to wear face coverings, social distance, stay home if sick, and wash hands well to contain the spread of the virus. SJBPH reminds anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms or anyone who is concerned that they may have been exposed either through known contact or general community interaction, to get tested.

San Juan Basin Public Health is a local public health agency, governed by a seven-member local Board of Health, serving all residents of La Plata and Archuleta counties. For over 70 years, San Juan Basin Public Health has improved the health and environment of the Southwest Colorado community.
