UPDATE!! Pepsi Center Drive-up Testing

Starting on Sunday, September 13th, the Pepsi Center's Drive-up Testing site will be reducing capacity from eight lanes to four lanes of service. As a result, the public should expect longer wait times than usual. To avoid being turned away, it is recommended individuals plan accordingly and register ahead of time.

In order to get the testing you need, please be sure to:

  1. Check with your primary care doctor first for testing
  2. Register as soon as possible for testing at the Pepsi Center, through September 30th.

The City and County of Denver maintains a calendar of Community Testing Events, including permanent Aurora and Adams County locations in the Regional Testing Information section of our Testing page.

Face Covering Order Update!

As of July 21, 2020, the Denver Face Covering Order(PDF) has been revised to maintain the minimum age for the wearing of face coverings to three-years-old and to add signage requirements for public indoor spaces. This update follows the statewide order issued by Governor Polis on July 16, 2020.

To comply with the updated order, owners, operators, or managers of public indoor spaces, as defined in EO D2020-138 (PDF), must post required signage (PDF) in a conspicuous place at every public entrance to the facility by July 28, 2020.  Signs must be clearly visible to the public and must be printed at a size of no less than 11 inches wide by 17 inches in height.

With Safer at Home underway and the phased loosening of state restrictions continuing, business and leisure activities are resuming in Denver. Face coverings continue to be mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government or health care services and while waiting for or riding on public transportation.

Businesses have been allowed to reopen with 50 percent of employees if they are able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.

While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our vast outdoors than in confined indoor spaces. Much of Colorado is now open with restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk for severe illness.
