COVID-19 testing is on going at Chief Sealth High School; Pre-registration required
The City of Seattle is now offering free COVID-19 testing, for all ages, across Seattle through a partnership with King County and UW Medicine. Drive-through and walk-up testing is available, but you must first register online.
Who Can Get Tested for Free?
If you live, work, or regularly visit Seattle, and you are experiencing a symptom(s) of COVID-19 and/or you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days, you can be tested for free.
If you attended large gatherings, you MAY have been exposed. You are strongly urged to get tested for COVID-19 if you develop ANY symptoms. Taking proactive steps to protect your health, such as wearing a mask, avoiding physical contact, and regularly washing your hands, can cut down on your risks of contracting the virus, even in large gatherings.
COVID-19 symptoms include:
- fever or chills
- shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- muscle or body aches
- new loss of taste or smell
- sore throat
- congestion or runny nose
- nausea or vomiting
What you'll need to get free testing:
- A photo ID with your date of birth. Testing is available regardless of your citizenship/immigration status.
- Insurance card, if you have insurance. If you have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid you must provide this information and UW Medicine will bill them. You will not be charged for the test. You do not need to have insurance or a doctor's note to schedule a test.
