A new drive-thru COVID-19 testing site has been set up at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee.

The Chelan-Douglas Health District opened the site this morning and the free testing will be offered six days a week from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

With the rate of new COVID-19 cases in Chelan and Douglas counties having surged in recent weeks because of the omicron variant the demand for testing also has ratcheted up.

The health district says there is no appointment necessary for the tests.

Kent Sisson of the health district said they are using rapid antigen tests, with results in approximately 15 to 20 minutes via text message.
