Press Release: COVID-19 testing options in Grays Harbor County
Grays Harbor County Public Health and Grays Harbor Emergency Operations Center would like the public to be aware of COVID-19 testing options within Grays Harbor County. With the addition of the Everlywell testing option this week, Grays Harbor now has four testing options.
In coordination with the Washington State Department of Health, Grays Harbor County Public Health now has Everlywell COVID-19 home tests free for public use. These tests are for people who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and those who are close contacts of people positive with COVID-19. To take this test, you must be 18 years of age or older with a valid email address, phone, and internet access. Tests will not be administered or distributed inside the building, as these tests are self-administered home tests. After the sample is gathered, recipients will drop off their samples at a designated UPS drop-off location. Please contact the COVID-19 center at (360) 964-1850 for pre-screening and instructions.
