Okanogan one of 9 counties offering at-home rapid COVID tests through NIH program


OKANOGAN — Residents of Okanogan County can take advantage of a pilot program to have rapid-result COVID-19 tests delivered to their homes.

Okanogan Public Health is one of nine county health departments to sign up for the testing program, funded by the National Institutes of Health. The QuickVue antigen tests are free of charge and yield results in about 10 minutes. Health officials say accurate home testing can help disrupt the spread of COVId-19.

Okanogan residents can sign up to receive their test kits online at sayyescovidhometest.org.
