Testing: Husky Coronavirus Testing

Tests for the virus that causes COVID-19 are administered at in-person testing sites and through a test you can take yourself at home. The program is powered by the Seattle Flu Study team — the group that was the first to report community spread of COVID-19 in the United States. If you have questions, please review our testing FAQ. You can also email or call (206) 616-2414. More information here:

  • Limiting passenger capacity (12 riders on 40’ buses; 18 riders on 60’ buses) to allow for physical distancing while riding.
  • Requiring that drivers and passengers wear masks or face coverings.
  • Expanding eligibility for the Metro Access program for customers with disabilities who are essential workers or are making essential trips.
  • Extending its suspension of fares at least through the end of May.
