State to shut down 40 COVID testing sites: Here's when it's happening

The Colorado health department announced Wednesday the closing dates for some community testing sites, while 80 others will remain open.

DENVER — The state health department on Wednesday announced the closing dates for 40 community COVID-19 testing sites statewide.

The state will close 40 of more than 150 testing sites this month, as testing and treatment for COVID transitions to traditional health care settings and federal programs like Test to Treat, said the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

That will leave 80 community testing sites open throughout the state. Current demand for PCR testing is less than 2,500 tests per day on average, CDPHE said in a news release.

"We took careful consideration of community needs and capacity demand in determining the schedule of site closures," said Dr. Emily Travanty, CDPHE laboratory director, in the release. "We considered equity, site traffic and strategic location when determining the 80 sites that remain open."
