Whitman County offers free COVID-19 tests to residents

Whitman County is offering free COVID-19 tests to residents while supplies last. 

You can order testing kits online for free home delivery. Limited test kits will also be available for pick up from select Whitman County Rural Library District Locations.

Tests require a quick swab inside each nostril, and results can be read in just 10 minutes. A free, private, and easy-to-use mobile application is available to help individuals in every step of test taking. 

The maker of the tests, Quidel, is the same company that made the first rapid flu tests.
