East Wenatchee, WA – Starting Monday, July 18, Chelan-Douglas Health District (CDHD) will expand its limited COVID-19 testing schedule to daily operations, running Monday through Friday from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm through July.
The change in operations is due to an increase in demand for COVID-19 testing and CDHD’s effort to support local healthcare workforce. Local healthcare organizations have reported an influx of symptomatic individuals seeking in-person COVID-19 testing during the current COVID-19 surge, increasing potential exposure to healthcare employees.
If you are exposed to COVID-19 or experience COVID-like symptoms, get tested at Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee. The drive-thru testing site will open Monday through Friday from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm through July. No appointment is needed and walk-ins are welcome. Test results are typically available within 15-20 minutes.
CDHD continues to offer FREE COVID-19 home test kits throughout various locations in Chelan and Douglas counties. Visit https://www.cdhd.wa.gov/covid-19#testing for a COVID-19 home test kit distribution site near you. To report at-home test results and access care services through Care Connect Washington, call 1-800-525-0127. Language assistance is available.
