Access to free COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody testing has increased across Lake County in recent weeks.

Under the CARES Act, most insurance companies are required to cover 100% of testing costs related to COVID-19.

St. Vincent Hospital (SVH) and Rocky Mountain Family Practice (RMFP) are also part of a federal program that waives testing fees for individuals, with a valid social security number and state ID, who do not have health insurance.

Individuals without a social security number are able to receive free testing at SVH and RMFP through a Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment program.
