The Washington State Department of Health announced its free at-home testing program Say Yes! COVID Test is ending May 11.
Washingtonians may continue ordering free COVID-19 home test kits from the Say Yes! COVID Test website, https://sayyescovidhometest.org/. As the COVID-19 pandemic moves into a state of recovery, however, eligibility has changed to focus on Washington communities most in need. Criteria will be based on public health measures that help identify communities with more disadvantaged households. Please visit the SYCT website to determine eligibility to receive five free test kits, which are delivered to the requester’s home or work address.
Federally supplied free at-home tests remain available to order for all while supplies last. Insurers are still required to cover the cost of eight at home tests per covered member per month until the end of the federal public health emergency on May 11.
DOH will continue to collaborate with local health jurisdictions, tribes, and community partners to support equitable access to testing supplies and services through existing services. Visit the DOH COVID-19 landing page, https://doh.wa.gov/emergencies/covid-19, for more information and resources, including testing and free telehealth treatment options.
