Additional Support for COVID-19 Testing on Orcas Island
Due to recent COVID-19 community outbreak on Orcas Island and in San Juan County, Island Primary Care – Orcas will expand testing for COVID-19.
Testing takes place by appointment only at the Clinic on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings with a capacity of 12 total testing spots per day. Additionally, scheduled testing will now be available on Tuesdays from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Testing will take place outside at the front of the Clinic, allowing patients to remain in their vehicle and drive in and out in one direction.
Testing will be performed for patients who have COVID-like symptoms or who have been exposed to someone who has had a positive COVID-19 test result. Pre-procedure testing will be done during the clinic’s morning testing schedules.
Due to limited testing capacity and community need, testing for travel purposes is postponed until further notice. Visit the Washington State Department of Health’s website to find additional testing locations: https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/COVID19/TestingforCOVID19/TestingLocations#region4
Please call 360-376-2561 or 360-293-3101 to schedule a COVID-19 test or an appointment at Island Primary Care – Orcas.
