A new COVID-19 testing site has opened in Windsor amid rising positivity rates in Weld County.

The site, operated by Curative, is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays at Eastman Park. The location offers PCR and antigen testing.

Insurance is required, but there is also a self-pay option available on the site for those who wish to be tested without insurance. A lab PCR costs $99 for patients who opt for self-pay, while there is no cost for insured patients.

If the patient pays for himself, the cost of PCR in the laboratory is $99. If they have insurance there is no cost to the patient as we will charge for the insurance.

Weld County’s one-week cumulative incident rate per 100,000 population is 201.9 with 664 new cases reported last week, according to Weld County COVID-19 data.

The county’s one-week average positive test rate is 12.11% from 10% two weeks ago – a significant spike since the positive test rate of 4.92% the second-to-last week in April .

In January 2021, the American Food and Drug Administration launched an alert on the risk of false results, in particular negative, with the Curative SARS-Cov-2 test. Curative testing sites have since discontinued use of the tests.

The company’s two sites in Greeley – a kiosk at the University of Northern Colorado and a drive-thru in West Greeley – have also stopped testing patients with the SARS-Cov-2 curative test due to the alert.
