Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment COVID-19 Dashboard 

Delta County Health Department has suspended it's COVID-19 data dashboard, and will no longer provide daily updates on positive cases, deaths, and vaccination data. However, CDHPE has an active data dashboard

Colorado’s remaining 20 community testing sites will close January 15, 2023

Over the past year, Coloradans have transitioned away from relying on large community testing sites and toward testing at home with widely available rapid tests, at their health care providers, or at local retail pharmacies. 

Coloradans can access free at-home tests through the federal at-home testing program, and free tests are available for pickup at distribution centers across the state. No insurance or cost is required for either program.

Insurance companies and health plans are required to cover eight free over-the-counter at-home tests per covered person per month. Coloradans without insurance can apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program). Health First Colorado covers COVID-19 testing for those who qualify.

Pharmacies and testing locations participating in the Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program also offer no-cost testing, including PCR testing, for people without insurance.

COVID-19 Vaccine

The State of Colorado Vaccine Bus Clinic is offering 1st & 2nd doses, as well as boosters and pediatric doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Walk-ups are welcome or make an appointment for one of the mobile vaccine clinics listed below:

Friday,  1/6/23: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. 
Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center 
195 W. Main St., Cedaredge, CO 81413

Please visit the mobile vaccination clinic site to schedule an appointment for the vaccine bus. Vaccines are free, and no ID, insurance, or appointment is needed! If you are getting a follow-up dose, please bring your CDC vaccine card.

Update (9/23/22):  For adults aged 18 years and older, the brand of omicron (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccine offered is based on availability. You may not get the brand you requested. Both Moderna and Pfizer effectively protect you from COVID-19. CDC recommends getting the first dose available to you, regardless of brand. There is no preference of one brand over another. Coloradans aged 12 through 17 years will get Pfizer’s omicron dose at their vaccine appointment, as it is the only omicron vaccine product authorized for this age group.

Actualización (23/09/22): En el caso de los adultos mayores de 18 años, la marca de la dosis ómicron (bivalente) contra el COVID-19 que se ofrezca dependerá de su disponibilidad. Es posible que no reciba la marca que ha solicitado. Tanto Moderna como Pfizer lo protegen eficazmente contra el virus. Los CDC recomiendan que se aplique la primera dosis que se encuentre disponible, independientemente de la marca (no hay preferencia por una marca en particular). Los coloradenses de 12 a 17 años de edad se aplicarán la dosis ómicron de Pfizer en su cita de vacunación, dado que es el único tipo de dosis ómicron autorizado para este grupo etario.

COVID-19 Testing

Colorado is distributing free rapid COVID-19 over-the-counter (OTC) tests directly to residents' homes. The program uses rapid antigen tests that show results within 15 minutes. Test manufacturers may vary, and users are encouraged to thoroughly read the instructions included with each test kit. Delta County Health Department will offer curbside pick-up only for the free COVID-19 test kits; call 970-874-2165 when you arrive outside the health department and someone will bring out your tests.
