King County moved its Auburn community testing site from the GSA Complex to Boeing’s Auburn facility at 2400 Perimeter Road effective April 26.
This move builds on the county’s ongoing partnership with Boeing to bring critical COVID-19 resources to South King County. At the end of March, the county relocated its Auburn vaccine clinic to the Auburn Outlet Mall at 1101 Outlet Collection Way, also with support from Boeing. This site remains fully operational.
Though vaccination efforts continue to expand in King County, recent trends in infections and hospitalizations show that the threat from COVID-19 is still real. Testing at the first sign of illness or exposure is key to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Higher positivity rates in South King County, compared to other areas, further elevates the need for ongoing access to testing.
The COVID-19 test site at Boeing’s Auburn facility has the capacity to conduct up to 1,000 tests a day, all free and accessible, regardless of immigration or insurance status. Continued partnership among county government, the city of Auburn, and partners like Boeing has supported ongoing COVID-19 prevention strategies.
“Free, accessible, and efficient COVID-19 testing remains essential to reducing hospitalizations and slowing the spread of infection,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “We appreciate the support of our community partners to ensure this crucial resource is maintained even as vaccinations increase.”
If you have a sign or symptom of COVID-19, or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should immediately isolate yourself from others and get tested.
