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 huskytest@uw.edu or call (206) 616-2414. More information here: https://www.washington.edu/coronavirus/testing/

UW Transportation Services supports vanpools operating at whatever capacity participants are comfortable. In partnership with regional transit agencies, they will continue to support vehicles operating with as few as two participants if that is what individuals are comfortable with.
  • Public Bus – We recognize the concerns that individuals may have about riding buses and other public transportation. We can share that King County Metro and other regional transit agencies has put in place additional measures to help support the health of passengers, drivers and the community, including:
  • Requiring that drivers and passengers wear masks or face coverings.
  • Safety partitions for drivers and upgraded air filters were added to vehicles during the pandemic and will continue to be included in transit vehicles.
  • Daily vehicle disinfections will continue to be standard practice.
