WHAT TO EXPECT:
Testing through COVIDCheck Colorado is easy, fast and convenient. To ensure the most efficient testing experience, individuals are encouraged to register. Pre-registration is highly encouraged to enable test site staff to plan for a seamless testing experience. COVIDCheck Colorado uses a nasal mid-turbinate swab PCR test, which is a highly sensitive and reliable test that is administered by licensed medical professionals. Here’s what to expect:
- Mask Up: On the day of your appointment, please arrive wearing your mask.
- Drive Up: A member of the COVIDCheck Colorado team will greet you and get you checked in.
- Look Up: A trained medical professional will explain the sample collection process and insert a swab about two inches into each nostril for about 10 seconds.
GETTING YOUR RESULTS:
Depending on the contact information you provided during registration, you will receive a text message and/or email alert from PrimaryBio when your results are available. If you test positive, you will receive a phone call from a tele-health clinician who will provide support and guidance on next steps. Should you notice that your results are delayed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
