County Offers Free Covid Testing


Lincoln County Public Health is partnering with Medical Teams International and the

Oregon Health Authority to offer free drive-through and walk-up COVID-19 testing in the

county. The first two scheduled events will be December 23 rd in Lincoln City and

December 30 th in Newport. Community members are welcome to get tested at any of the

sites regardless of where they live in Lincoln County. Services will be provided in English

and Spanish, and other languages as needed.


Lincoln County community members that are 5 years and older are welcome to participate

regardless of whether they have COVID-19 symptoms or not. Parents and caregivers are

encouraged to use their judgement and discretion in administering the test to young

children. Testing at these events will involve a pain-free, self-administered nasal swab to detect COVID-19 infections; it does not offer the antibody test.


Participants should receive results through their account on DoINeedACovid19Test.com within 3-5 days of their test date. Registration for an appointment is required for this event, and each person will need their own appointment. For example, if a car with four people need tests, four registrations will be needed. On-site registration will also be available during the event for those unable to pre-register, but this may cause a delay.
