SMP_CP_Testing_Update_20201001

Although certain area COVID testing sites will soon close, other options are still available, and Arapahoe County officials urge everyone who needs a test to take advantage of these free options.

COVID-19 testing at the community-based site at the Aurora Sports Park will end on Sunday, Oct. 4. (The large testing site at the Pepsi Center in Denver also closed, on September 30.) But on Monday, Oct. 5, a new rapid-testing site will open in the parking lot at Restoration Community Fellowship, 15660 E. Sixth Avenue in Aurora.

The drive-up or walk-up testing will be offered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Mondays only, through Dec. 7. Free testing will be provided to anyone who wants to be tested, especially for those who have symptoms, do not have insurance or are experiencing homelessness.

No appointment is necessary, but only a limited amount of testing is available each day and is first come, first served. Residents may download, complete and print out a pre-registration form online (in English or Spanish) at TCHD.org/AuroraTesting to speed up the testing process. Advanced Urgent Care is providing the rapid testing, and results will be available within an hour.

Arapahoe County CARES dollars are funding the site, with logistical support from the city of Aurora.

COVID-19 testing is essential for identifying and tracking cases and outbreaks quickly while also providing treatment options and isolation to prevent spread. “Testing those who need it is a critical component to combatting the spread of COVID,” said Arapahoe County Board Chair Nancy Sharpe. “We’re pleased to be able to offers funding from Arapahoe County CARES to help the city of Aurora make free testing widely available and accessible, which will allow us to continue to increase our economic activity and ensure ample capacity at local hospitals.”

More details are available at TCHD.org/AuroraTesting.
