COVID-19 Mobile Testing Closed on Tuesday, September 15 due to Poor Air Quality
Bellingham, WA - Due to unhealthy air quality, Whatcom Unified Command, upon public health recommendation by the Whatcom County Health Department, has decided to close the drive-through testing operations for Tuesday, September 15.
Dr. Greg Stern, Whatcom County Health Officer, recommended that testing be postponed in order to protect those scheduled for testing, as well as staff, from unhealthy air quality.
Those with appointments will be notified of cancellations and have an opportunity to register for an appointment at a later date. WUC and WCHD will continue to evaluate air quality conditions with the goal of re-opening testing as soon as it can be done safely.
For any changes to the testing schedule monitor www.whatcomcounty.us/covidtesting or the Whatcom County Health Department Facebook page.
