Mobile Health Center Curbside Testing

Denver Health's Mobile Health Center has partnered with COVID Check Colorado to bring the no-cost COVID-19 testing to your neighborhood. Testing is critical to help stop the spread of the virus by isolating those who might be ill and getting care for them as well. Reach out if your organization or business is interested in hosting the MHC at your site.



 


More Testing Resources

Mobile Testing 

If you want a COVID-19 test, but are unable to access a testing site due to transportation, mobility, or financial limitations, we can come to you. Call 311 to find out if you qualify for a visit from the mobile testing team. They will ask you some questions to ensure you meet the requirements, and then you’ll be scheduled for a visit.

Mobile testing is available five to six days per week during normal business hours by a team of medical professionals and support staff.

Eligibility questions

When callers reach 311 they will hear “if you are calling to see if you qualify for free mobile COVID-19 testing from the City & County of Denver, please press 7.”

In order to receive a free COVID-19 test you must meet the following criteria:

  1. You believe you have symptoms of COVID-19 or& have been told by Public Health that you are a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case; and
  2. are unable to travel to a COVID 19 testing facility; and
  3. are a resident of the City and County of Denver.

If you can answer “yes” to these 3 items, please hold to speak to Denver Department of Public Health & Environment.” If you cannot answer “yes” to these 3 items, please hang up and go to Denvergov.org for more information.

People who are undocumented are encouraged to get tested if they are symptomatic; ID is not required for our mobile testing program. We ask for name and DOB for records purposes – that is the only way we can confirm a person’s test results.

If you are visiting a testing site, please call to confirm what is required for testing.

Testing Accommodations

If you need a sign language interpreter or CART Services, contact SignLanguageServices@denvergov.org with at least a three (3) business day notice. For other public accommodation requests/concerns related to a disability, please contact DisabilityAccess@denvergov.org.

Contact Tracing

What is Contact Tracing?

Contact tracing is an effort where health workers identify sources of infection and inform others who've come in contact with such sources. Coupled with rigorous testing, contact tracing can counteract potential rising waves in infectious diseases. Contact tracing is part of the overall function of case management in public health.

There are three main components to case management:

  • Interviews: Trained staff interview people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to determine who they may have been in close contact with during the time they were considered to have been infectious.
  • Contact tracing: Staff then warns these individuals, or contacts, of their potential exposure as quickly and sensitively as possible. In order to protect patient privacy, contacts are only informed that they may have been exposed to an individual with the infection. They are not told the identity of the person who may have exposed them. They are offered resources and support.
  • Contain: People who have had contact with a COVID-19 positive patient are provided with education, information, and support to understand their risk, what they should do to separate themselves from others, how to monitor themselves for illness, and the possibility that they could spread the infection to others even if they themselves do not feel ill. If a contact becomes symptomatic, the local public health department can be contacted to assist them in getting tested. If the contact tests positive for COVID-19, their recent contacts will be traced and informed, too.

It is very important that residents help the health workers by answering the phone. Health workers will not ask any private questions about finances or social security numbers. 

The process continues until everyone who has been exposed is isolated from others to reduce virus transmission. Contact tracing, coupled with rigorous testing, can counteract a potential second wave and prevent cases from spiking again.

Denver Department of Public Health & Environment is not currently hiring or soliciting volunteers for Contact Tracing, as we are managing with internal and partner resources. If DDPHE does begin seeking volunteers or hiring staff for Contact Tracing, we will post a link on this page. Please check back in the future, and we appreciate all of the offers of support we have received thus far!

Is Denver working with other cities?

Since COVID-19 does not stop at jurisdictional boundaries, Denver will work with other regional local public health agencies to continue coordinating case investigations and to improve contact tracing. The partnership will help to ensure contact tracing will be complete and thorough.
