King County and the City of Seattle have established COVID-19 testing sites to help address the need for free testing services—especially for our more vulnerable communities. All the sites listed below are ADA accessible and can provide services in multiple languages, including ASL.
Public Health—Seattle & King County is asking the community to help spread the word about these free, accessible services so that anyone who needs a COVID test can get one. See the information below for each of the sites open now. Additional sites may be opened in the future, depending on demand.
At each of these sites:
- No documentation is needed.
- No insurance or doctor’s orders are needed.
