*Grand County Public Health (GCPH) provides free rapid Antigen tests (15-minute tests) through a robust, weekly, predictable testing program to address outbreak and surveillance testing needs across Grand County.
If you are a local, asymptomatic Grand County resident who has been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case, are on quarantine orders, or are a critical/frontline worker in Grand County, you may attend any of the scheduled GCPH antigen testing times. However, because the goal of this program is to detect and contain outbreaks quickly, we ask that asymptomatic people who have not had a COVID exposure or who are not a critical/frontline worker to please coordinate with their primary care provider to get tested. Symptomatic patients and those who are positive for COVID should also contact their Primary Care Physician about testing.

PCR: (Polymerase chain reaction), usually done by nasal or oral swab. This test detects the genetic material of the virus and can be used to test for several viruses. This is the best test we have right now to tell if you have active COVID-19 on the day you test. But you can test negative one day and then test positive on the next day, based on when your body mounts a response to the infection.
Antibody (serology) testing: a blood test that can see if your body has viral antibodies. Antibodies suggest that you have been infected with COVID-19 in the past or present. There are three types of antibodies: IgG, IgA, and IgM. IgG indicates infections in the past; IgA and IgM both indicate current or recent infection.
Antigen testing: a nasal swab test that looks for proteins that live on the virus’ surface. This test detects COVID-19 active disease, but a negative test does not guarantee that you do not have disease.
