To support the state's COVID-19 community testing sites financially and so that testing may continue through March 30 in Aurora, the testing provider, MAKO Medical, is now accepting health insurance from residents who are insured and need to get tested. Testing remains free to everyone regardless of insurance status. There are no out-of-pocket costs for anyone. However, those who have insurance will be asked to provide insurance information when registering for a test to allow MAKO Medical to bill health insurers for testing costs. A testing site continues to operate in the Aurora Center for Active Adults parking lot, 30 Del Mar Circle. Visit this link to view testing site locations and links to register.

New public health orders from Tri-County Health Department
Tri-County Health Department issued new public health orders for Arapahoe and Adams counties designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The measures differ depending on the county, but include earlier restrictions on the sale of alcoholic beverages, limits on the size of personal gatherings and other measures.

Face covering orders and guidance
Tri-County Health Department extended its public health order (en español) effective for the duration of the pandemic or until amended or rescinded requiring face coverings in indoor public spaces and outdoor public spaces whenever a six-foot distancing cannot be maintained. Visit Tri-County Health's website for more information.

Gov. Jared Polis extended and amended a state executive order mandating facial coverings Dec. 8, which remains in effect for at least another 30 days. The order requires people in Colorado who are age 11 years and older to wear a covering over their noses and mouths when entering or moving within any public indoor space or while using or waiting to use public or non-personal transportation services. People who do not have to wear a mask include those who are 10 years old and younger and those who cannot medically tolerate a face covering. Children ages 2 and under should not wear masks or cloth face coverings.

The Aurora City Council renewed the city manager’s disaster declaration (effective July 20) to allow the city to delegate enforcement authority of public health and executive orders related to facial coverings to other city departments aside from the Aurora Police Department. The disaster declaration also allows the city to quickly implement necessary policies to address regulatory changes, directives or licensing restrictions contained in the executive orders or public health orders.

Research shows that people who have no symptoms can spread COVID-19. Wearing a non-medical face mask helps minimize the spread of the virus. Face coverings are a safe, inexpensive, effective and easy way to slow the spread of COVID-19, used in conjunction with other best practices such as social distancing, handwashing and staying at home while experiencing symptoms.

Businesses are required to post a notice about the executive and public health orders. Posters are available online to download at or at

Residents who have concerns about the mandate not being followed may reach out to Tri-County Health Department’s call center at 303.220.9200. Concerns about business non-compliance may be sent to or 303.739.7057. The city’s Tax and Licensing Division, Code Enforcement and Open Space and Natural Resources Division will educate residents and the public about these orders and will enforce the rules upon repeated violations.
