King Soopers/Colorado Emergency Operations Center news release:

Through continued partnership with the Colorado Emergency Operations Center, King Soopers extends FREE COVID-19 drive-thru testing through the end of May. King Soopers Health and Wellness professionals have administered over 2,000 free tests to date and anticipate administering 14,000 tests by the end of May.

Community members can register at Kroger Health.

People needing a test will use a virtual screening tool based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to see if they are eligible. 

Those eligible will then select the appropriate testing location and appointment time and receive an email confirmation with pre-appointment paperwork. When the patient arrives for a test, they should have a photo ID ready and leave their windows rolled up for check-in. A health care practitioner will approach the car and alert the patient when to roll down their window.

The test uses self-administered nasal swabs, which are less painful and designed to increase safety. This onsite testing is supported with laboratory services provided by eTrueNorth, a contractor of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Test results are expected within approximately 48 hours.
