Call Your Provider
Several health care clinics offer COVID-19 testing in Mesa County. These locations play an important role in identifying COVID-19 cases quickly, which has been a key factor in ensuring case counts remain at manageable levels and do not overwhelm our hospitals.
It is a good idea to call your primary care physician first with symptoms of illness, they know your medical history and can offer guidance for what may be best for you.
If you do not have a primary care doctor, call MCPH.
