COVID- 19 Concerns & Testing
As COVID surges in Colorado, we realize that DPS students are at risk for a COVID-19 infection. School Based Health Centers (SBHCs) can help students with symptoms get COVID-19 testing.
School nurses will refer DPS students experiencing symptoms to the SBHC medical team. The SBHC medical team will schedule a same-day telehealth / telephone appointment to determine if
COVID-19 testing is necessary. If testing is recommended, SBHC staff will refer you to a testing center.
*SBHCs will only refer students for testing if they are experiencing symptoms

About Denver Health's School-based Health Centers
Denver Health's School-based Health Centers (SBHCs) form a large network of health centers located inside Denver Public School (DPS) campuses that serve any DPS student as well as children enrolled in DPS-affiliated Early Childhood Education programs at no charge to families. We offer medical, mental health, dental, health education and family planning, as well as insurance enrollment and advising services.
Our services are available at all locations throughout the school year and at a limited number of locations during the summer. School-based Health Centers offer convenient services that limit the amount of time students spend out of class and the amount of time parents/guardians have to take off work to attend appointments. In most cases, students can obtain same-day or next-day appointments.
