There are dozens of coronavirus testing sites in Spokane County. Some require insurance or fees, while others do not.

SPOKANE, Wash. — It's a question frequently typed into Google search bars during the coronavirus pandemic: Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

In Spokane County, there are dozens of testing sites open daily. Some require insurance or fees, while others do not. 

In North Idaho, people can go to get-tested-covid19.org, type in their ZIP code and it will show you a list and map of testing centers within 40 miles. 

The site provides information on the testing centers, such as if an order is needed to get a test, if the location takes walk-ins or appointments must be scheduled, if drive-thru testing is available and basic information including hours of operation and directions to the site.

Health care professionals screen people for signs and symptoms of possible COVID-19 exposure and, if needed, test for the virus.

Generally, people with the following new symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are eligible for testing.

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

OR at least two of the following:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

People who have been informed that they were in close contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 or who work in a high-risk environment are also encouraged to be assessed for testing.

Here is a breakdown of where you can go for coronavirus testing in Spokane County.

Rapid testing for some groups

Providence ExpressCare located at 9027 N. Indian Trail Rd. in Spokane has launched a pilot program for rapid COVID-19 testing of those at greater risk of contracting the virus.

The rapid test is available to health care workers, first responders and high-risk patients by appointment only. It is not available to the general public.

Providence ExpressCare can deliver a positive test result in as little as five minutes and a negative result in 13 minutes using the Abbott ID-NOW COVID-19 test. 

In order to schedule a testing appointment, patients first need to initiate a virtual visit with a Providence ExpressCare provider. During the visit, they will be screened based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state guidelines to determine if testing is warranted.

If a patient meets the criteria for testing, the virtual provider will schedule them for an in-person test at the ExpressCare clinic. Testing will be conducted curbside with the patient remaining in their vehicle.
