General
Testing
  • Boulder County Community COVID-19 Testing Sites Map
  • Blood donors who give blood through Vitalant are also able to learn their COVID-19 antibody status. Antibody tests are used to tell if someone had a past infection with SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. This testing, however, does not indicate whether the antibodies neutralize the virus and protect against reinfection. Learn more
