COVID numbers increasing, in person City services modified

In response to the rise of COVID cases in Arapahoe County and moving to Level Orange on the state’s dial dashboard the City of Centennial has modified in person interactions. The City continues to offer all services and program online.

Also, remote video inspections are available upon request to homeowners who would prefer to not invite City employees physically into their homes. These inspections are performed by using commonly-available technologies of Skype and Facetime. Exceptions and/or emergencies will be evaluated on a case by case basis to ensure public health and safety. Inspections may be scheduled online.

The City continues to encourage anyone experiencing COVID symptoms to get tested. A testing site is open at Centennial Center Park located at 13050 E. Peakview Avenue. Testing at the Centennial site is open to anyone; no ID, health insurance or appointments are required, but visitors are encouraged to reduce wait times by pre-registering at tinyurl.com/co-15238 before going to the site. Results from the tests will be available within four days.

The Centennial location fills a service gap and is expected to draw residents from nearby locations, including Aurora, Littleton and Douglas County. “As cases continue to rise, it is critical for us to wear our masks, social distance and do our part to ensure that our economy can remain open and for our community to be safe and healthy. As we head into the holiday season, please continue to work together so the we can slow the spread,” says Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “I appreciate the partnership between the State of Colorado, Arapahoe County and the City of Centennial on making the opening of the Centennial test site a success.”

The Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) has launched a mobile app to help stop the spread and protect others while maintaining privacy through CO Exposure Notifications. Learn how you can join the movement at addyourphone.com
