REMOTE, (March 30, 2021): Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is reminding Coloradans that if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or believe they may have been exposed, they should get tested for COVID-19. 

Anyone with symptoms should get tested as soon as possible, stay away from others, and follow the instructions on how to isolate. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, wait until at least 5 days have passed since the date you think you were last exposed before getting tested, unless you develop symptoms. Follow the instructions on how to quarantine after exposure to prevent further transmission.  

As has been the national trend, the state has seen COVID-19 testing numbers decreasing. 

“While it is good news that more of the state is opening and cases are decreasing, we cannot completely let our guard down or stop using preventive measures until everyone who wants a vaccine has received one,” said Eric France, chief medical officer, CDPHE. “Testing allows the state to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and helps us mitigate outbreaks and increased disease transmission.”

There are still many free, state-run community testing sites available:

  • Adams City High School
