Second round of COVID-19 testing delayed in San Miguel County

Company conducting lab tests swamped with work from New York
San Miguel County has delayed the second round of blood tests that were offered for free to all county residents. The company that paid for the tests and is processing the lab results, United Biomedical Inc., is swamped processing tests from New York City and can’t process the results from San Miguel County in a “clinically timely manner.” Only a few people were seen moving around March 20 in Telluride after a shelter-in-place order was given earlier in the week for San Miguel County.
