Health Department: Free COVID Tests Available

Health and Wellness Icon for Announcements

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) will continue to provide free COVID-19 home test kits to residents at least through the end of 2022. Residents can order up to 10 free at-home test kits per month through the “Say Yes! COVID Test” program. To order, visit sayyescovidhometest.org. The kits are delivered to the requester’s home or work address, free of charge.

The antigen tests take 15 minutes to complete. Users can follow up with a test from a medical provider or test site to verify results. Those who test positive can report their test result to Washington's COVID-19 hotline at 1–800–525–0127. More information and resources are available here.

Testing is one of the key ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19, along with staying current on vaccines, wearing a well-fitted mask in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings, frequent handwashing, and staying home when sick. Health officials encourage everyone to get their flu shot and COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

Hospitals and emergency rooms are operating at a higher than usual capacity due to a surge in respiratory viruses. Health officials encourage everyone to consider taking a COVID-19 test prior to a gathering, especially if you are getting together with people who are older, immunocompromised, or at risk for severe disease.
