Testing available at this site through June 30. To support the state's COVID-19 community testing sites financially, the testing provider, MAKO Medical, is accepting health insurance from residents who are insured and need to get tested. Testing remains free to everyone regardless of insurance status. There are no out-of-pocket costs for anyone. However, those who have insurance will be asked to provide insurance information when registering for a test to allow MAKO Medical to bill health insurers for testing costs. A testing site continues to operate in the Aurora Center for Active Adults parking lot, 30 Del Mar Circle. Visit this link to view testing site locations and links to register.

Because COVID-19 remains in Colorado, residents are advised to stay home as much as possible, practice good hygiene by washing hands frequently and avoid touching your face, wear a face covering or mask when you leave home, and connect with neighbors and loved ones virtually.

Thank you, Aurora, for doing your part, observing public health guidelines, reaching out to neighbors and friends, lifting up front-line health care workers and first responders, and supporting local businesses during this time.

Face covering orders and guidance
Tri-County Health Department has amended its public health order on face coverings. The updated order, which removes the requirement regarding face coverings in outdoor public spaces, will be in place until June 30, 2021, unless rescinded, amended or extended. The order only applies to Arapahoe and Adams counties as Douglas County has opted out of the order. Visit Tri-County Health's website for more information.

A state mask mandate also remains in effect. The order requires people in Colorado who are age 11 years and older to wear a covering over their noses and mouths when entering or moving within any public indoor space or while using or waiting to use public or non-personal transportation services. People who do not have to wear a mask include those who are 10 years old and younger and those who cannot medically tolerate a face covering. Children ages 2 and under should not wear masks or cloth face coverings.

The Aurora city manager’s disaster declaration still in place allows the city to delegate enforcement authority of public health and executive orders related to facial coverings to other city departments aside from the Aurora Police Department. The disaster declaration also allows the city to quickly implement necessary policies to address regulatory changes, directives or licensing restrictions contained in the executive orders or public health orders.

Research shows that people who have no symptoms can spread COVID-19. Wearing a non-medical face mask helps minimize the spread of the virus. Face coverings are a safe, inexpensive, effective and easy way to slow the spread of COVID-19, used in conjunction with other best practices such as social distancing, handwashing and staying at home while experiencing symptoms.

Businesses are required to post a notice about the executive and public health orders. Posters are available online to download at or at

Residents who have concerns about the mandate not being followed may reach out to Tri-County Health Department’s call center at 303.220.9200. Concerns about business non-compliance may be sent to or 303.739.7057. The city’s Tax and Licensing Division, Code Enforcement and Open Space and Natural Resources Division will educate residents and the public about these orders and will enforce the rules upon repeated violations.
