COVID-19 Testing Kiosk
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDHPE) has partnered with Curative and organizations across the state to launch new COVID-19 testing kiosks that are quick, easy and free to all students, staff and community members.
The testing kiosk is located on the east side of Nottingham field located on the UNC
campus. For extra convenience, you can register for a time slot based on your category.
Walk-ups are also welcome but there may an associated wait time.
Protect the Community
If we want to protect our friends, family and community—it is important to get tested.
The state is encouraging all Coloradans with symptoms to 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.
Oral-fluid Swab Test
The specific test is an easy to administer oral-fluid swab test that tests for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19. The self-collected oral fluid swab involves having the person cough first, which releases the virus from the upper and lower respiratory tract. The virus is caught in the saliva, and then the patient swabs the inside of their cheeks and the roofs of their mouths. Once complete, the patient seals their test within a secure container and returns it to a medical professional to be administered in the lab.
Curative provides an end-to-end testing service, managing everything from the supply chain to processing and delivering results. Patients should expect to receive test results within 48 hours via text or email.
In addition, the state is continuing to support mobile test sites and pop-up community testing events communities across the state. There are more than 50 free community testing sites across the state, as well as dozens of locations offered by private providers. The state will continue to work with local partners to meet community testing needs in a manner that best serves their residents.
