You can schedule online at or by calling (360) 778-6075 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily. Appointments for the following week will open each Saturday. We have also created an easy how-to guide if you are having trouble scheduling an appointment.

 Anyone can get tested at no cost to them through the mobile testing program, including people without insurance or a physician referral.

  • If you have insurance, you must provide insurance information for billing purposes when you schedule an appointment. People with insurance may be held responsible for the cost of a COVID-19 test if they do not provide their existing health insurance information.
  • People without insurance can also be tested at no cost to them through a federal program that will reimburse the health department for all costs associated with the test. 

While this program is designed to be a drive-through testing site, if you do not have access to a vehicle, accommodations will be made by calling (360) 778-6075. For assistance scheduling a test in a language other than English, language services are also available by calling (360) 778-6075.
