Apart from wearing a mask and practicing physical distancing, getting tested if you are concerned you may have COVID-19 is one of the most important things you can do to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. If you are concerned that you may have COVID-19 because you have symptoms, we recommend that you get tested right away. If you are concerned that you have COVID-19 because you know you had an exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, we recommend that you get tested between 5 – 7 days after exposure. And remember, testing is the only way to know for sure if you have COVID-19.
Several testing options and locations are now available in Spokane County, including low- and no-cost options. See our list on the Locations tab above to find the option that fits your needs. If you have a primary care provider, we recommend contacting them to inquire about testing.
Keep in Mind
Each testing location follows their own protocols. Some locations offer walk-in screening for anyone while others ask that you first speak to a healthcare provider via phone or virtual visit.
