About Us

COVIDCheck Colorado, a social benefit enterprise of the Gary Community Investment Company, represents a philanthropic health consortium whose mission is to help Coloradans navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and get back to our community safely. 

We are here to stand up an affordable statewide system that:

  • Complements organizations’ strategies to reopen by providing access to accurate and affordable COVID-19 testing, symptom tracking and contact tracing.
  • Manages appointments and test results for health providers and patients.
  • Makes available tools that can notify employees or students when they have been exposed, while protecting their privacy.

COVIDCheck Colorado works in accordance with guidelines from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as well as an advisory board of public health leaders and HIPAA-compliant partners.
