Seattle: Free Coronavirus Testing: North and in South Seattle

Free Coronavirus Testing

The City of Seattle is now offering free COVID-19 testing. As with all City services, we will not collect or ask immigration status and this test is available to everyone – with or without health insurance. There are two locations for walk-up or drive-thru testing in North Seattle – 12040 Aurora Avenue – and South Seattle at 3820 6th Ave S. An appointment is encouraged and you can schedule ahead online.

The City is continuing to work to make testing accessible in more neighborhoods and you can learn more about testing, testing sites, ADA accommodations, and more via Seattle/King County Public Health.
