GCPH offering COVID antigen tests

Sky-Hi News staff report

Grand County Public Health is offering COVID-19 antigen testing around the county at no cost.

Public health will test asymptomatic residents who have been exposed, quarantined or are critical and frontline workers. The tests are a nasal or throat swab that provides information on current or recent infections within two hours, though it’s not as accurate as a PCR test. 

Public health also continues to urge symptomatic people to call their primary care physician first.

Testing will take place from 8-11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Fraser Historical Church; noon-3 p.m. Tuesdays and 3-6 p.m. Saturdays at the Granby Community Building; 4-6 p.m. Tuesdays and noon-2 p.m. Saturdays at the Grand Lake Pitkin House; 4-6 p.m. Thursdays at the Grand County Public Health building in Hot Sulphur Springs; and 3-5 p.m. Thursdays and 8-11 a.m. Saturdays at the CSU Extension Hall in Kremmling.

Other entities around the county offer a variety of COVID tests for differing costs, including Middle Park Healh, Denver Health and Safeway Pharmacy. City Market Pharmacy offers antibody tests via appointment, which can be made at citymarket.com/antibody.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with details about the tests available at City Market.
