Testing

Here are 3 Key Steps to Take While Waiting for your COVID-19 Test Results

  1. Stay Home
  2. Think about the people you have recently been around
  3. Answer the call or text from your local health department

What happens if I test positive?

If you have mild symptoms, follow the instructions on how to isolate.  If you think you need medical advice, consider a telehealth visit or nurseline advice before seeking in-person care. Medical professionals can help you decide what medications to use to treat your symptoms. 

You will also receive a call from staff at Broomfield Public Health to check on your health and to do contact tracing. They will ask questions about who you have been in contact with and where you spent time. They will also help you identify any barriers you may have to stay at home during the isolation period. 

If you live with other people, public health will provide education on how you can keep them from getting sick as well.  Some key items to remember:

  • Avoid other people in your house as much as possible
    • Sleep in a separate bedroom 
    • Use a separate bathroom 
    • Remain in a separate part of the house away from others
  • Wear a mask inside if you must be in the same room as another person
  • Avoid sharing meals and kitchen equipment (including plates, utensils, and drinking glasses)

Please know that Broomfield Public Health will:

  • Never ask for payment of any kind
  • Never ask for a social security number
  • Never ask for proof of residency
  • Never require testing without discussing the individual's exposures first
