The Fremont County Departmentof Public Health (FCDPH)  has announced that it will hold free drive-through testing beginning on Thursday, Oct. 22,  due to the continuing rise in COVID-19 cases in the county.

“With the recent increase in community transmission in Fremont County, it is imperative that those who have been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19 follow the guidelines for quarantine and isolation and stay home,” said FCDPH Director Kayla Marler. “If our numbers continue to stay elevated we will have to move into the Safer at Home: Stage 2 Level of concern and our county will have to adhere to stricter limitations.”

Starting Oct. 22 the county will begin free COVID-19 testing working with MAKO Medical  at the Fremont County Department of Public Health. Testing will then continue 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Sat. The drive-through setup is at the Garden Park Building, 201 N. 6th St. in Canon City.
