Montrose Memorial Hospital is a safe place to receive care. The EOC is receiving reports of patients that are seeking care from providers that would otherwise need care from the hospital’s emergency department.

Please continue to seek preventative care in order to stay healthy.

Please keep regular appointments with your primary care provider to keep chronic conditions under control. Most importantly, if you are sick please stay home, treat your symptoms, and call a doctor if your symptoms worsen.



Montrose County Public Health has a test site available for individuals who meet criteria to be tested. In order to be tested, please CALL your primary care provider.
