How to get tested for COVID-19
UW Medicine offers drive-up and walk-up testing for those who have symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

During times of high demand, there is very limited testing available for those without COVID-19 symptoms or a known exposure to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Other COVID-19 testing sites
UW Medicine Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology testing sites
The Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology at UW Medicine operates additional COVID-19 testing for members of the public through the City of Seattle and King County. These locations are NOT for pre-surgery patients and is NOT part of the Husky Coronavirus Testing program for UW students, faculty and staff. Please note that UW Medicine providers cannot access test results from these locations.

These locations are a self-swab site, where individuals conduct their own swab while being observed by a healthcare provider. Watch this video to see the self-swab testing process from start to finish.

All locations are open Monday – Saturday. Find test location details within the following accordions. Call 206.477.3977 for translation services.

Who should get tested for COVID-19 at UW Medicine test sites
You should get tested for coronavirus if:

You have any of the following NEW symptoms not explained by another known condition:
Fever or chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea

You have had close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

You have been referred for a test by a healthcare provider or state or local health department.
If you’re interested instead in an antibody test, read more about antibody testing. The antibody test is not the same as a nasal swab test and does not check to see if you have a current COVID-19 infection. People who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should NOT get an antibody test.

Can I get a COVID-19 test even if I don’t have symptoms or a known exposure?
Testing is prioritized for people with COVID-19 symptoms or who have had exposure to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

How COVID-19 testing works
How payment for your coronavirus test works
Your insurance and billing information is gathered at the time that you make your COVID-19 testing appointment.

UW Medicine will bill your insurance. If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for assistance through the HRSA uninsured program. More information about health insurance and the coronavirus is available on the Insurance Commissioner’s website.

For all other UW Medicine sites, in partnership with King County or City of Seattle:

If you have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid you must provide this information and UW Medicine will bill them. You will not be charged.

King County and City of Seattle sites provide free COVID-19 testing regardless of immigration or insurance status. They are open for drive-thru or walk-ups/wheel-ups to anyone who cannot access a COVID-19 test through their regular healthcare provider.
