The Khmer Health Board is partnering with the Khmer Community of Seattle King County, Healthpoint, and UW medicine to provide free COVID-19 tests and giveaway items (while supplies last) on Saturday September 19th from 9am-3pm at the Evergreen High School Parking Lot. Additionally, health navigators from Public Health Seattle King County and a representative from Healthpoint will be available to help provide information and resources.

You do not have to be tested in order to get the giveaway items which include:

  • a bag of Khmer groceries
  • 2oz. hand sanitizer bottle

The event is open to the general public although the event is geared towards the Khmer community as in-person Khmer interpreters will be available. People who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms are encouraged to get tested although you will not be turned away for testing if you are not experiencing symptoms.

  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • fever
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms (like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)
  • muscle aches
  • headache
  • chills
  • sore throat
  • runny nose

Testing can take between 10 to 30 minutes depending on the waiting time. Both walk-up and drive through testing is available.
