Where to Find a Covid PCR Test in Seattle and King County

Lena Weib


The rush for Covid-19 testing appointments is back on again, thanks in large part to the proliferation of omicron.

At-home rapid tests are at toilet-paper-level scarcity, leaving many to seek out PCR tests (or other viral diagnostic tests) from county-run sites and hospital popups. As you start your search for swabs, it’s probably worth it to give your doctor a call first to see if they offer tests. Pharmacies like Bartell, Walgreens, and CVS may also have appointments.

This list will continue to evolve, and we’ll do our best to keep it updated. For the latest guidance on Covid-19 testing and locations, visit Public Health—Seattle and King County’s testing page
