COVID-19 Testing Site Established at Water World

The State of Colorado has established a COVID-19 testing site in Adams County, located at Water World, 8801 N. Pecos St., Federal Heights.

The site will operate daily from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., through September, with the possibility of an extension based on community need. Up to 2,500 tests will be administered each day, and there is no cost to get tested. Visitors do not need an identification card, a social security number, or insurance to get a test.

“Having this testing site in Adams County increases access to free testing for thousands of our residents, many of whom do not currently have health insurance or easy access to a COVID test,” said Adams County Commissioner and Board Chair, Emma Pinter. “We are grateful to the State of Colorado and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for partnering on this important initiative.”

Registration is not required, but visitors are strongly encouraged to pre-register for a faster experience at the testing site. Registering in advance allows the site to test up to 2,500 people each day. Nine testing lanes are set up to accommodate the expected number of people, but pre-registering is key to expediting the process for visitors. Those seeking a test can pre-register here or scan the QR code below to register.

The tests will be administered by MAKO Medical, and results will be available in two to four days. If those who have been tested do not receive test results within four days, it is recommended they follow the process outlined in this document.
