The state encourages all Coloradans who need or want to get a COVID-19 test to go to any of the many community testing sites and events like these located throughout the state. There are numerous state-sponsored community testing sites across the state, as well as dozens of locations offered by private providers. They are free, convenient, and do not require a doctor’s note, identification, or insurance. The state’s website has a list of locations. 

Please isolate if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Please quarantine if you know you have been exposed/are likely to have been exposed but do not yet know if you’re infected. Coloradans should refer to the state’s website for additional quarantine or isolation instructions.

People with symptoms should always get tested immediately. Symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills.
  • Cough.
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Fatigue.
  • Muscle or body aches.
  • Headache.
  • New loss of taste or smell.
  • Sore throat.
  • Congestion or runny nose.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Diarrhea.

At the request of some local partners, CDPHE is supporting mobile test sites, long-term testing sites, and pop-up community testing events to ensure everyone has access to COVID-19 tests. The state will continue to work with local partners to meet community testing needs in a manner that best serves their residents. 

While testing is an important tool in the COVID-19 response, the state cautions that a negative test doesn’t mean it’s OK to meet in large gatherings or bypass other public health orders, like wearing a mask. All Coloradans need to mask up, physically distance, interact only with members of their own households, and stay home while sick. Continue to stay up to date by visiting covid19.colorado.gov.
