COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources


COVID-19 Vaccine Resources

All Coloradans ages 12 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, and all Coloradans ages 18 and older are eligible to receive the Moderna or Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.

Tri-County Health Department continues to partner with Jogan Health to offer a walk-up or drive-through only (no pre-registration available) vaccine clinic in the southwest parking lot of the Aurora Municipal Campus seven days a week.

In addition, the city of Aurora is partnering with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to offer mobile vaccine clinics in Aurora.


In May, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Pfizer vaccine for emergency use in adolescents age 12 to 15, and the Centers for Disease Control made the recommendation to follow the FDA decision to authorize emergency use of this vaccine in this age group. Colorado vaccine providers are now providing vaccine administration for this age group.

COVID-19 Testing Resources

If you need to get tested for COVID-19, visit the Aurora Center for Active Adults parking lot, 30 Del Mar Circle. The testing site is now open through at least Dec. 31.

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.

COVID-19 Updates

The state's COVID-19 dial has evolved into Public Health Order 20-38: Limited COVID-19 Restrictions, which allows counties to implement regulations at the local level while still maintaining some limited requirements across the state. Counties may use the statewide dial framework as a model for implementing their own regulations.

With this change, Arapahoe and Adams county businesses and residents will follow simplified guidance issued by the Tri-County Health Department, with the continued goal of controlling and slowing the spread of COVID-19.
 
The Level Clear Observation Period runs from May 16 to Aug. 16 (90 days): Counties have moved to Level Clear, which has no restrictions, subject to Tri-County Health Department observation of hospital admission rates in Arapahoe and Adams counties. In Level Clear, businesses will be able to operate at 100 percent capacity with no mitigation requirements, although the state's face-covering requirement will still apply.

Douglas County has opted out of the local public health order.
 

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.


COVID-19 Mask Guidance


Face covering orders and guidance
Mask-wearing and vaccination are the two most important tools Coloradans can use to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and bring us closer to the end of the pandemic. Now that all Coloradans age 12 and older have access to safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, masks are only required in certain places for people who are not fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people can go without masks in public indoor spaces unless the setting requires otherwise. Visit the state's website for additional details and guidance.

With the Delta variant making up nearly 100 percent of the new COVID-19 cases and spreading twice as fast as prior COVID-19 viruses, the Tri-County Health Department issued a face mask order for Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties. The order requires that face coverings be worn by everyone in indoor spaces in schools and childcare settings serving children ages 2 through 11. The order is effective Aug. 23.
