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.

Locations, dates and times for improved access to free COVID-19 testing in undeserved communities includes:
