The Estes Park Health Physician Clinic is honored to bring valuable COVID-19 testing to the Estes Valley community. The Physician Clinic is offering COVID-19 testing for symptomatic healthcare workers, 1st responders and community members.
If you are a symptomatic healthcare worker or 1st Responder, please follow the process below:
- Please call 970-577-4400 and let them know that you are a symptomatic healthcare worker or 1st
- You will be directed to the Clinic COVID Triage Team (CCTT) and they will walk you through the testing process.
- You will need to have work identification to receive a test.
- Testing will take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. This timeframe may increase if demand increases.

The Estes Park Health Physician Clinic will now be testing symptomatic community members that meet criteria for testing. Please follow the process below:
- Community members need to call 970-577-4400 to speak with the Clinic COVID Triage Team (CCTT) during regular business hours: Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
- The CCTT will provide patients with step-by-step instructions to set up a Virtual Visit with a provider.
- The result of the Virtual Visit with a provider may or may not include COVID-19 testing.
It is important to note that a negative COVID-19 result does not mean that a patient will never test positive for COVID-19. It is a point-in-time test and a patient could be exposed to the virus after a test. There is also the potential for a false negative despite proper testing techniques. Anyone tested should continue to monitor their symptoms and talk with their provider if they are not improving.
If a patient is tested for COVID-19, a provider will contact the patient with the results whether positive or negative. If a patient receives a positive test, the provider will discuss care options.
