Drive-thru assessment center begins to take shape in Durango

Health officials say they need ‘some idea’ of virus’ presence in community
The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday set up what could eventually be used as a drive-thru assessment location to screen for coronavirus at the La Plata County Fairgrounds. San Juan Basin Public Health hopes to get the green light for resources to open the drive-thru location, which would not be open to the public and instead would test selected people most at risk, like health care workers, people with symptom and those with orders from doctors.
Health officials are prepping for a possible drive-thru assessment location at the La Plata County Fairgrounds. More needs to happen before such a center can open.
Health officials say they are battling the coronavirus without their best tool: testing. A local push to get a temporary testing site in Southwest Colorado is underway, but there’s no time frame for when that might happen.
San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington is doing drive-thru COVID-19 assessments this week for people experiencing flu-like symptoms.
