Western Garfield free COVID testing is still available in New Castle, Rifle and Parachute one day per week through March 1, though pre-registration links and times have changed.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is no longer using Curative testing and has switched to Mako testing due to concerns about the accuracy of Curative tests. Curative tests may have shown false negative results.

*** There will be no testing available on Monday, Feb. 15, due to the President’s Day holiday.

The best way to help keep our schools open is to keep COVID-19 cases in Garfield County as low as possible.

Help us by making the following commitments:

I commit to:

WEAR a mask.

WASH my hands.

WALK, ride or play 6 feet away.

WORK together safely.

IF ILL – stay home
