Bellevue College COVID Testing

International Community Health Services is now offering free COVID-19 testing at three locations: in Seattle at its International District clinic, at its Shoreline clinic and at Bellevue College. Testing in Bellevue is made possible through a partnership with King County Public Health, Bellevue College and University of Washington. Drive-thru and walk-up testing is available to everyone regardless of your citizenship/immigration or insurance status.

If you are experiencing symptom(s) and you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days, get tested immediately! If you have no symptoms, but have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, wait 5-7 days from the date of exposure to get tested.

What you’ll need to get free testing

  • A photo ID with your date of birth. Testing is available regardless of your citizenship/immigration status.
  • Insurance card, if you have insurance. If you have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, please provide this information and the lab will bill them. You will not be charged for the test.
  • You do not need to have insurance or a provider’s note to schedule a test.

COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
