How and where should I get tested?

Eagle County Government, Vail Health, and Colorado Mountain Medical offer COVID-19 testing with and without a medical provider in convenient locations throughout Eagle County. If you're experiencing symptomsdon't hesitate to get tested. Reference the guides below for your testing options. In the meantime, stay home, isolate and treat your symptoms.  

If you want to get a free COVID-19 test, please refer to the locations listed below under "FREE COVID-19 Testing Sites". If you would like to see a provider while getting your COVID-19 test, please schedule at one of the sites listed below under "Testing With Provider." Please note, if tested with a provider, you may accrue out of pocket fees for both the test and provider visit. Please contact your insurance carrier to inquire on how these fees are covered.

It is REQUIRED that every person schedules online if you would like a FREE COVID-19 test through Vail Health. Please see instructions below under Avon, Eagle (Eby Creek) and Vail instructions for scheduling your testing appointment.

Testing With A Provider

If you're experiencing cold, flu or COVID-like symptoms and would like to consult with a provider please follow the steps below to set up an appointment. If you have a known exposure and asymptomatic, schedule an online appointment with Vail Health, or schedule an appointment 5-7 days after your known exposure date with a CMM provider. When scheduling with a provider, you may accrue out of pocket fees for both the test and provider visit. Please contact your insurance carrier to inquire on how these fees are covered.
  • Call to schedule an appointment: Call (970) 926-6340 - Press Option 9 .
  • You'll be seen at one of our Colorado Mountain Medical offices in Vail, Avon or Eagle.
    *Please find the location hours by clicking the links listed above. 
 

What will this cost?

  • There are no fees associated with the COVID-19 test if you get a test at one of our "Free COVID-19 Test" locations above.
  • Testing With Provider: If tested while at a provider visit, you may accrue out of pocket fees for both the test and provider visit. Please contact your insurance carrier to inquire on how these fees are covered.
 

Do you need a test for travel? 

  • If you're needing a COVID-19 test for travel, it is up to you to research what is required, as each destination requiring testing has different criteria. If the destination requires results from a specific lab (i.e Walgreens, Quest, CVS, etc.), then you will need to get your test at that specific location.
  • You'll receive your tests within 24 hours via your patient portal.
  • Testing for minors: You will be asked to fill out a Request of Information (ROI) at time of testing for the minor. If you aren't able to fill that out at time of testing then you will need to call or email our Health Information Team at: (970) 569-7403 or Medical.Records@vailhealth.org
 

What type of tests are offered at CMM and Vail Health?

  • We offer PCR tests at our Avon Urgent Care and our Vail Health COVID-19 testing sites in Vail and Avon (in the trailer outside of Colorado Mountain Medical building).
