Getting a home-collected COVID-19 test kit is easy as stopping by your local Pierce County Library branch! Pierce County residents, call your library to schedule a pickup during curbside hours. You can take the test in the privacy of your own home at the date and time that works for you. The kit includes simple instructions to safely take the test and drop it off at a UPS Store or UPS drop box. You can also request one from the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

Visit Pierce County COVID-19 Testing for a list of locations throughout Pierce County. Get tested if you have symptoms or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19. Most health insurance plans cover testing and treatment for services necessary for COVID-19. The state insurance commissioner ordered all health plans his office regulates to waive copays, coinsurance and deductibles for people requiring testing for COVID-19. Copays and deductibles will still apply if you need treatment.
There is a new tool to help stop the spread of COVID-19: YOUR PHONE. WA Notify is an anonymous exposure notification tool that can help you stop the spread of COVID-19. It’s simple and it’s free. WA Notify can alert you if you’ve been near another user who later tests positive for COVID. And it’s completely private.
If you have an iPhone, just go to settings, enable Exposure Notifications and follow the prompts. If you’re on an Android Phone, go to the Google Play Store and search for "WA Notify" and download the WA Notify App.
The more people who use WA Notify, the more effective it will be. So, wear a mask, physically distance, delay even small gatherings for now and add WA Notify to your phone.
Help stop the spread of COVID-19.
