Rapid testing can be useful to quickly help determine if you have COVID-19. Rapid molecular and rapid antigen testing is widely available in the Denver Metro Area. Many urgent care centers and some Walgreens locations offer rapid testing. We encourage you to call the site or visit their website before you go to find out if they offer rapid testing and what type of rapid testing they offer.
Antigen tests with positive results are usually highly accurate. However, negative results may need to be confirmed with a molecular test. If you don’t have symptoms of COVID-19 but need to be tested, a molecular test may be the better test to use.
To find a location near you, visit the Colorado COVID Testing Locator. Some free sites offer rapid testing as well as the urgent cares that are listed.
