COVID-19: Moving Forward

Since March of 2020, we have worked collaboratively (government, business and non-profits) to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. As we transition to the endemic phase we remain prepared for the variants that will emerge.

MASK REQUIREMENTS
Vail Health does not require patients, visitors or staff to wear masks within our facilities and clinic locations. Masks are REQUIRED at Shaw Cancer Center in Edwards and Dillon. Individuals are encouraged to wear masks as they see appropriate within their own comfort level, including:
  • You have any respiratory symptoms.
  • You have been recently exposed to a respiratory illness.
  • You are not up-to-date on recommended vaccinations. 
  • You are immunocompromised.    
Please communicate any respiratory protection needs to staff.

Testing Information

COVID-19 Testing for Illness (Not for Travel)
If you are sick, please schedule a doctor appointment with your primary care physician at Colorado Mountain Medical. They can provide COVID-19 testing (if needed) as well as help manage your symptoms. You may also visit one of our urgent care locations.

Colorado Testing Site Map
Coloradans can find free or low-cost tests at community testing sites, pharmacies, and rapid test distribution centers. These locations are displayed on the Colorado COVID testing site map.

Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19
Regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19. You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results. If your results are positive, follow the full isolation recommendations. If your results are negative, you can end your isolation.

Testing for Travel

While we do not offer COVID-19 testing for travel, there are places that do. Please check out the links below for more information:

At-Home Testing Information

Local public health recommends that you use an at-home test kit whenever possible. Home test kit results are reliable, accurate, and provide results within 15-30 minutes. Testing at home also prevents unnecessary exposure to potentially sick patients in healthcare and other public settings.
 
  • FREE COVID At-Home Test: Every home in the United States can now order a third round of free at-home tests using COVIDtests.gov. USPS distributes free at-home COVID-19 tests, including tests that come with accessibility options for people who are blind or have low vision. These more accessible tests work with a smartphone app to provide audio instructions and audio test results. Learn more about more accessible tests for people who are blind or have low vision. Place your order for more accessible free tests. For assistance with ordering, call the Disability Information and Access Line at 888-677-1199. The hotline is available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. MST.
     
  • Purchase At-Home Tests: If you need a COVID-19 at-home test now, at-home test kits are also available for purchase online and from many local retail stores — such as City Market, Walmart and Walgreens. Call retail establishments in advance to determine if test kits are currently in stock.
