Grays Harbor Public Health to operate drive-through testing site

Grays Harbor Public Health and the Washington Army National Guard will operate a drive-through COVID-19 testing site starting Wednesday, April 15, 2020 and running daily as long as supplies permit.

This service is free to people who meet the testing criteria of Health Order 2020-04 and are symptomatic.

With the support of the Washington State Public Health Lab, testing will be provided to people who:

  1. Have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever [subjective or measured] and cough and/or shortness of breath); AND
  2. Meet the criteria priority populations outlined in Grays Harbor County Health Order 2020-04.

The Health Order’s priority populations include people who are considered essential workers under Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order and their household members.

A complete list of essential workers is available at https://coronavirus.wa.gov/whats-open-and-closed/essential-business.

As more testing supplies become available, this Health Order may be expanded to encompass more people.
