PUEBLO — The drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at the Pueblo Mall will close on Monday, January 11.

The City of Pueblo said its due to a decrease in the number of people getting tested for COVID-19.

This site is one of two free community testing sites operated by MAKO Medical in Pueblo County. Free testing will continue at the Colorado State Fairgrounds.

“The number of people seeking testing in Pueblo County has decreased to the point where we believe it is no longer necessary to operate two testing sites,” said Randy Evetts, public health director for the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment. “We are confident the one testing site at the Colorado State Fairgrounds will be able to handle the current and future demand for testing in our community.”

The testing site at the Colorado State Fairgrounds is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
