Temporary COVID-19 Test Site
Beginning this Saturday, November 13, the north parking lot of the Windsor Community Recreation Center will become a temporary and free COVID-19 test location. Testing will be available on Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the exception that it will not happen on Saturday, November 20. The site will resume again starting Saturday, November 27.
On days that the site is open, there are two ways to participate and insurance is not required. Participants can reduce their test wait time by pre-registering at AffinityeCareColorado.com (book an appointment online, receive an email confirmation and bring it to the appointment) or they can register on site which may extend their wait. The free mobile COVID-19 test site is provided in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Health and Environment and Affinity eCare.

Although most people who have COVID-19 have mild symptoms, COVID-19 can also cause severe illness, particularly in those who have underlying medical conditions. Because COVID-19 is a newer virus, scientists are learning more about it each day but general symptoms may include one or more of the following: sore throat, cough, fatigue, runny nose, and trouble breathing. Visit the State of Colorado’s data portal to see the most recent Colorado COVID-19 statistics and information.
The Town of Windsor asks that all employees and visitors to its facility follow recommended CDC guidelines. Additional guidance is provided by the two counties that Windsor is located within.

COVID-19 Safety Information
Help keep our community safe. Here are some basic COVID-19 safety guidelines.
- Stay at least 6 feet apart. Indoors and outside, try to keep at least 6 feet between yourself and those who do not live with you.
- Stay home when you're sick. Even if you have minor symptoms like a runny nose or a sore throat, please stay home away from others. If you have a concern, contact your local healthcare provider.
- Wash your hands. This was a good idea before COVID was known worldwide and it lessens the risk of transmitting viruses.
- Consider vaccination. Reducing COVID-19 prevents unnecessary illness and preserves our hospital system capacity.
- If unvaccinated, consider wearing a mask. Respiratory droplets carry viruses when we breathe, speak, sneeze and cough. Masks help keep droplets from spreading to others.
- Residents are asked to stay home when sick or if they have been exposed to someone who is sick.
