Colorado is now encouraging residents with flu-like symptoms and workers who have frequent contact with others in public settings but feel healthy to be tested free for the coronavirus.
Gov. Jared Polis announced the change in state testing policy on Monday at a testing site in the Denver suburb of Wheat Ridge. The state now has the capability to test 10,000 people daily but hasn’t been using \full testing capacity. Polis had a nasal swab test to show how easy it is. He says he plans to soon issue public guidance on how restaurants will be allowed to reopen. He says outdoor seating will be necessary.
