Only one passenger per vehicle traveling to an appointment will be allowed during Governor Polis' Safer at Home Order. The passenger may bring a family member or caretaker to their appointment if they notify the NEMT provider when they make their NEMT appointment. All Passengers are required to wear a face covering during transportation.
If you have a medical emergency, call 911. NEMT is not for emergencies. If you are having COVID-19 symptoms, call your provider and let them know before you use NEMT transportation or go to your provider's office. Your provider may need to talk to you about your symptoms before you come in.
