Chelan-Douglas Health District and Columbia Valley Community Health Testing Efforts
August 17, 2020
EAST WENATCHEE – Chelan-Douglas Health Distict (CDHD) and Columbia Valley Community Health (CVCH) are joining together to offer free, COVID-19 testing to Bridgeport residents on Tuesday, August 18, 2020. Health workers will be stationed at La Plaza Market in Bridgeport and will also go door-to-door throughout Bridgeport neighborhoods offering free testing.
Due to a recent uptick of COVID-19 positive cases in the Bridgeport area, the Health District wants to determine how widespread the virus is. The tests are self-administered after instructions by the health worker. The sample is collected and an on-site lab located in Brewster will provide the results within 24-hours. There is no charge for the test.
For the health of your family, neighbors, and friends, please wear a mask when in public. Together, we can stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
CDHD would like to remind everyone to stay safe, social distance and mask-up. Masking is the next best thing to a vaccine. For more information, visit www.cdhd.wa.gov/covid-19 and follow us on Facebook & Twitter .
