SPOKANE, Wash. — The drive-thru COVID-19 testing site will reopen on Thursday, according to Dr. Bob Lutz with the Spokane Regional Health District.

The testing clinic will continue to be at the Spokane Interstate Fairgrounds, but in Barn A. Access to the site is at the northeast Broadway Ave gate near the horse barns.

Wind, rain and snow has forced the previous testing site to close for the past few days. The health district said the new location is resilient to inclement weather.

The testing clinic is operated by the SRHD and helps ease pressure on local hospitals and doctor’s offices.

The new site is set to open Thursday at 10 a.m.
