Colorado health officials turn people away from drive-up coronavirus testing site in Denver because of high demand

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

At 11 a.m., one hour after the lab opened, the wait time was three hours. The site is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Health officials will create a cutoff point in line. Those on the wrong side of that cutoff will get first preference tomorrow when the lab reopens, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment said in a statement.

The state urged people with symptoms and people who believe they have been exposed to the novel coronavirus to ask their doctor about getting swabs analyzed by private providers who now have the capacity to complete testing.
