Mesa County Public Health continues to provide a FREE COVID drive-through community testing site in Grand Junction. The testing site at the Mesa County Fairgrounds, located at 2785 US Highway 50, is open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

You do not have to have an appointment, but pre-registration is encouraged. Information about how to register can be found on our website. There are no identification or insurance requirements.

People with symptoms should always get tested immediately. Symptoms include:

● Fever or chills

● Cough

● Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

● Fatigue

● Muscle or body aches

● Headache

● New loss of taste or smell

● Sore throat

● Congestion or runny nose

● Nausea or vomiting

● Diarrhea

Anyone who gets tested because of symptoms or because of a possible exposure should be in isolation/quarantine while waiting for the test result. All individuals who believe they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should quarantine and limit their exposure to others for a full 14 days, even if they have testing done and that testing is negative.

While testing is an important tool in the COVID-19 response, we ask all Mesa County residents to take action and avoid crowds, avoid closed-in spaces, avoid close contact with other people, wear a face cloth covering, and stay home if you are sick.
