Coronavirus Testing at Denver Health
To help protect our patients, staff and community while following city and state guidelines, Denver Health is testing all patients who are admitted to the hospital for COVID-19. For all non-hospitalized patients, limited testing is available with an order from a provider and an appointment. All patients entering a Denver Health facility can expect to have their temperature taken and be given masks to wear.
Walk-in COVID-19 testing is not available at any Denver Health location. For more information on COVID-19, call the Colorado helpline at 303-389-1687.
Coronavirus self-pay testing at Denver Health costs $35.93. To learn more about pricing at Denver Health, visit our pricing transparency page.
What to Do if You Have COVID-19 Symptoms
If believe you might have COVID-19, call the Denver Health NurseLine at 303-739-1211. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 directly.
Symptoms of coronavirus may include fever, chills, trouble breathing, cough, loss of taste or smell, fatigue, headache, diarrhea, body aches, congestion or vomiting.
You may also contact your primary care provider through your MyChart account or call your primary care clinic if you believe you have COVID-19. They will be able to determine if you meet guidelines for testing and if you need to be seen for an in-person visit.
