New Location and Driving Route for COVID-19 Testing Site at Airport
BELLINGHAM, WA -- The Whatcom County Health Department’s drive-through COVID-19 testing site at the Bellingham International Airport, operated through a partnership with Northwest Laboratory, has moved to a new location at the airport.
Previously located in Economy Lot A, the testing site now operates out of Economy Lot B, effective Wednesday, Nov. 17. The testing site has moved to accommodate the airport’s needs as it makes room for the addition of Southwest Airlines.
Economy Lot B is accessible via Bennet Drive and Bakerview Road. Drivers seeking COVID-19 testing at the airport are asked to use this route to avoid causing congestion along Airport Way. Watch for signs posted along this route.
