**See attached listing of event locations, dates, times and registration instructions or our website at https://www.co.lincoln.or.us/hhs/page/free-lincoln-county-drive-thru-covid-19-testing-events.**
Lincoln County Public Health is partnering with Medical Teams International and the Oregon Health Authority to offer free drive-through and walk-up COVID-19 testing in 4 locations in the county. Community members are welcome to get tested at any of the sites regardless of where they live in Lincoln County. Services will be provided in English, Spanish, Mam and other languages as needed.
Lincoln County community members that are 5 years and older are welcome to participate regardless of whether they have COVID-19 symptoms or not. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to use their judgement and discretion in administering the test to young children. Testing at these events will involve a pain-free, self-administered nasal swab to detect COVID-19 infections. It does not offer the antibody test. Participants should receive results through the LabDash app, email, and/or by phone within 7 days of their test date.
Community members interested in being tested are encouraged to register before the event. Those that have registered before the event will be placed in the “express line” for testing when they arrive. On-site registration will also be available during the event for those unable to pre-register.
