Washington State Online Option
Washington households can now order free COVID test kits shipped directly to their homes twice a month, while supplies last, through the Say Yes! COVID Test program.
Each order contains 5 tests.
Typically ships within one to two weeks of the order being placed.
Some COVID-19 tests receive shelf-life extensions from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which gives those tests new expiration dates different from what you see on the box. You can look up the FDA list of tests with extended shelf lives to see which tests have an updated expiration date. Even if a test has an updated expiration date that is now in the past, per DOH, you can still use the test if it passes quality control
The quality control process for many at-home tests is simply making sure the line next to the “C” printed on the test cartridge shows up when the specimen is dropped on it. If the quality control process fails, you should discard the entire box of tests.
