New COVID-19 testing sites open in Yakima County next week but the weather is cutting the hours of operation the sites will be open. Beginning Friday sites will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. then starting Monday, June 1 sites will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Health officials say the change will protect the Washington National Guard and Yakima Health District personnel who are in full protective equipment from heat related illnesses and stress as well as keeping them in good health to be able to manage the testing sites through mid June as planned. The testing is free. Call 211 for an appointment.
The tests are for those with COVID-19 symptoms that include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and a loss of taste or smell.
