Denver’s drive-through coronavirus testing facility in the parking lot of Paco Sanchez Park just off Federal Boulevard was busy on Nov. 18, 2020, ahead of Thanksgiving.

As families settle into the holiday season, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment has announced a new slate of free, community-run testing sites for COVID-19.

CDPHE said in a press release that some of the new locations were already up and running as of Thursday, though some will not open until Sunday morning.

The state also plans to hold a series of one-off testing events through Tuesday. The newly announced events and sites will accept walk-ins, but CDPHE says people seeking a test should still register online beforehand.

A list of the new locations and event details can be found below. Links to the appropriate registration pages are attached. CDPHE has a guide to its other testing options on its website.
