Arapahoe County’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is working with the Tri-County Health Department and the City of Centennial to open a free COVID community testing site at Centennial Center Park, 13050 East Peakview Avenue in Centennial, near the intersection of Arapahoe Road and Peoria Street. The testing center opens on Monday, Nov. 2 and will offer drive-up screenings seven days a week between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Recent increases in COVID cases statewide and in Arapahoe County have prompted state public health officials to move the County from Safer at Home Level 1 to Level 2 on the state’s COVID dial dashboard. This imposes further restrictions on residents and businesses that could become more severe if the County is unable to improve upon its COVID rates.
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 mako.exchange/scheduler/registration/?location=29 before going to the site. Results from the tests will be available within four days.
Maximizing testing options is crucial to tracking the spread of the virus, and the County also has recently added, expanded or reopened testing centers in Aurora and on the Eastern Plains. “Anyone who thinks they might have been exposed to COVID-19 should get tested, even if they feel asymptomatic,” said Nate Fogg, Arapahoe County OEM’s emergency manager. “The more people get tested, the more we can track the spread of the virus and begin to reverse the trends by taking the appropriate health measures.”
The Centennial location fills a service gap and is expected to draw residents from nearby locations, including Aurora, Littleton and Douglas County. “We are happy to be able to provide a location that will bring additional testing for Centennial and our surrounding communities. Having a testing site that is free, with no doctor’s order required and close to home or work will provide citizens with the ability to continue to manage their day-to-day lives with more certainty,” says Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “I appreciate the partnership between the State of Colorado, Arapahoe County and the City of Centennial on making this happen.”
The Centennial testing site is funded by Arapahoe County CARES and run by MAKO Medical Laboratories. For more information or to pre-register for a test, visit TCHD.org.
