FREE COVID community testing site event in Bennett for Tri-County residents and neighboring counties
Testing event is open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on November 6 at 610 7th Street Bennett CO 80102.
Bennett, Colo. (November. 05, 2020): Tri-County Health Department, with the help of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), is hosting a FREE COVID-19 community testing site event in Bennett, Colorado. The testing site is at Bennett High School at 610 7th Street Bennett CO 80102 and will run from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on November 6.
The state is encouraging all Coloradans who need or want to get a COVID-19 test to go to any of the many community testing sites and events like these located throughout the state. There are no identification or insurance requirements, and the tests are free.
There are more than 50 free community testing sites across the state, as well as dozens of locations offered by private providers. The state’s website has a list of locations.
People with symptoms should always get tested immediately. Symptoms include:
- Fever or chills.
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
- Muscle or body aches.
- New loss of taste or smell.
- Sore throat.
- Congestion or runny nose.
- Nausea or vomiting.
At the request of some local partners, the CDPHE is supporting mobile test sites and pop-up community testing events in communities to ensure everyone has access to tests. The state will continue to work with local partners to meet community testing needs in a manner that best serves their residents. As CDPHE aims to bring more accessible testing sites to communities in Colorado, we hope to have more community testing events like this one in the future.
Anyone who gets tested because of symptoms or because of a possible exposure should be in isolation/quarantine while waiting for the test result. All individuals who believe they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should quarantine for a full 14 days, even if they have testing done and that testing is negative.
While testing is an important tool in the COVID-19 response, the state cautions that a negative test doesn’t mean it’s ok to meet in large gatherings or ignore other public health orders, like wearing a mask. All Coloradans need to mask up, physically distance, avoid large gatherings, and stay home while sick.
