FREE COVID TESTING

Through a partnership with CDPHE, COVIDCheck Colorado is opening up testing sites across the metro area to the broader community — free of charge! That means DPS team members can share this opportunity with friends and family and help slow the spread of COVID. Note, the appointment link for the community differs from that for DPS team members. Please share this link with those outside of DPS to make an appointment. 
With the Thanksgiving holiday around the corner, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommendations for staying healthy and still enjoying the holiday. To help prepare, now is a good time to schedule a COVID test for before and after the holiday. If you plan to gather with friends or family, help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by limiting the size of the gathering and testing beforehand. When together, wear masks, keep some distance and wash hands.
The week of Thanksgiving, testing services will be open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Schedule your test online to make sure that you are prepared for the holiday. We also recommend that DPS team members also schedule a test for after Thanksgiving, about five days after gathering.
