Call your health care provider if you are concerned you need to be tested. People who are uninsured or do not have a doctor’s referral can go to the drive-up testing lab during open hours, where they will be directed to a nurse or epidemiologist on site to be assessed.
Patients must be symptomatic to be tested and meet the state’s criteria, which evaluates a combination of symptoms and risk factors.
Colorado’s state public health lab is conducting drive-up testing. There is also a private lab conducting tests, with two more expected to begin next week.
Test results from the state lab should be available within 72 hours, depending on testing volume.
