Should You Get Tested?

Anyone who needs a test is encouraged to get one. 

If You Have Symptoms:

  • Anyone who has symptoms should get tested immediately and isolate for at least 10 days from onset and until they are fever-free for 24 hours (without the help of medication), and their symptoms are improving. 
  • In some more severe cases, medical providers may recommend isolation for longer. 

If You've Been Exposed:

  • Anyone who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should quarantine for 14 days and get tested seven days after the exposure. 
  • A negative test should not release someone from quarantine because symptoms might not appear for up to 14 days after exposure.

COVID-19 Vaccines

Vaccination distribution and prioritization plans are made at the state level and passed through the local health authorities to carry out. For Arapahoe County, that health authority is the Tri-County Health Department. To get the latest vaccination updates, please visit
