COVID-19 Testing Site at Airport Closed for Heat
BELLINGHAM, WA -- The WCHD-WUC COVID-19 testing site at the Bellingham International Airport operated by Northwest Laboratories will be closed due to the heat today. Testing services are expected to resume at the airport tomorrow, June 29.
The site is being closed because there is no relief from the heat at the airport. Northwest Laboratories has rescheduled appointments that were originally scheduled for today. Anyone who had a COVID-19 testing appointment at the airport today should expect a call from Northwest Labs, if they haven’t been contacted already.
There are many other COVID-19 testing sites in Whatcom County. For a complete list of local COVID-19 testing providers, go to WhatcomCounty.US/CovidTesting.
