Expanded Testing for Communities Most Adversely Impacted by COVID19
June 08, 2020
Denver Public Health, the City and County of Denver, and several community organizations have partnered to offer free COVID-19 testing directly in the Denver community.
While data gathered by Denver Public Health includes only known cases of COVID-19 confirmed by testing, the figures clearly show a disproportionate amount of inequities in death by race and ethnicity. Guided by this data, access to testing is being expanded to communities most adversely impacted by COVID-19.
Additional locations and days for free, community-based COVID-19 testing are currently being determined. If your community organization is interested in hosting a free COVID-19 testing site in Denver, please call Denver Public Health at 303-946-7471.
