Testing Sites

Last updated on 1/24/2022

Tests are in short supply right now. You may not be able to get one for several days. If you are sick but can't get a test, assume you have COVID-19 and follow the CDC isolation guidelines. If you are not sick but have been exposed, try to test on day five after your exposure.

Types of Tests

The two most common COVID-19 tests are the PCR and the rapid antigen test.  

  • PCR — This is the more sensitive test and must be sent to a lab so results take longer, usually at least 1-3 days. This test is appropriate for people with or without symptoms. If you don’t have symptoms, try to test on day five after exposure. The PCR test detects genetic material from the virus.
  • Rapid antigen — This test is quicker, with results usually available in about 30 minutes. It is most effective for people who have symptoms, but can also be used by people without symptoms if a PCR test is unavailable. The test is screening for proteins produced by the virus, so it’s most reliable when you are showing symptoms.

At-Home Test Kits 

FREE tests from federal government: Every U.S. household can now order four FREE at-home tests from COVIDtests.gov. The test kits will ship in 7-12 days. Order in advance so you will have when you need them. 

Buy a test and get reimbursed by insurance: At-home test kits are also available at some retail locations and online. You get two tests for about $25. After January 15, insurance companies are required to reimburse you for up to eight tests a month. Check with your insurer to see if they have an agreement with retailers. Until then, keep your receipts as you may need to send these in to get reimbursed. 

We do not have a supply of at-home tests to hand out to the general public. We are awaiting tests from Oregon Health Authority and will distribute these tests through community-based organizations to people who live or work in settings that put them at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, and those who historically have had difficulty accessing testing. 

You do not need to report your positive at-home test to Washington County. The Oregon Health Authority has launched a webpage for people who want to voluntarily report their positive test. You can also get more information on how to isolate and keep those around you safe while you recover.
