There are several ways to get tested for COVID-19 on and off of Vashon, depending on your
reasons for needing testing, your timeline, and ability to travel.

days of our pandemic activation, is joining other elements of the VashonBePrepared activation in

Friday, June 25, but continues to provide contact tracing for Vashon in support of Public Health
-- Seattle & King County. The MRC will come back in response to developments if needed.
