COVID-19 Testing

URGENT COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE AS OF 1/22

Due to the recent discontinuation of the CURATIVE TEST SITES by the state, the Clear Creek drive-thru test site in Idaho Springs is cancelled until further notice.  Clear Creek Public Health is exploring lab availability and other logistics to re-open a Clear Creek County test site as quickly as possible. 

Summit County is offering three alternative sites for community testing:

  • Silverthorne run by MAKO through CDPHE (drive-thru site)
  • Frisco run by Centura
  • Breckenridge run by Vail Health

*These are NOT Curative tests and anyone can use them.
