Testing ends Oct. 4 at Sports Park, new rapid testing site opens Oct. 5
October 1st, 2020
COVID-19 testing at the community-based site at the Aurora Sports Park will wind down Sunday, Oct. 4. In its place, a new rapid testing site will open the following day, Monday, Oct. 5, in the parking lot at Restoration Christian Fellowship, 15660 E. Sixth Ave.
The drive-up or walk-up testing will be offered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays only through Dec. 7. Free testing will be provided to any individual 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 on site 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.
Because testing is so critical during this public health crisis, the city of Aurora is supporting the state’s efforts to make free testing widely available and accessible as part of a broader approach to prevent spread while allowing for a continued increase in economic activity and ensuring ample capacity at local hospitals.
