Due to cold weather the Community Sampling Site for COVID-19 testing, located at the Mesa County Fairgrounds, is closing due to safety concerns and specimen integrity. The site is expected to reopen Wednesday, October 28. 

Mesa County Public Health recommends anyone who may have been exposed to the virus get tested 7 days after exposure and quarantine for a full 14 days, regardless of test result. Testing is free for Mesa County residents and health insurance is not required. 

Although no appointment is necessary, pre-registration will speed up the process once you arrive. Register online at the Mako Medical website.  The turnaround time for results is between two to four days from the time the sample is received at the lab. 

Additional testing information is available here.
