Drive-thru COVID-19 testing available on Tuesdays in downtown Bremerton

A new drive-thru COVID-19 testing site opens Tuesday, Dec. 8, in the second (green) level of the Kitsap Conference Center Harborside Parking Garage, at 2nd Street and Washington Avenue by Bremerton Marina. 

The site is operated by the Kitsap County Emergency Operations Center and Kitsap Public Health District, in partnership with the City of Bremerton. Testing will be offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, for anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms, has been exposed to a COVID-19 case, or meets other testing criteria.

“I’m proud to be part of this important partnership and that the City is able to offer a new site for COVID-19 testing in Bremerton,” said Bremerton Mayor Greg Wheeler. “Residents and workers need to have access to testing to know if they have been exposed and to control the spread of the coronavirus. The Harborside garage at the Kitsap Conference Center fit the criteria for a drive-thru location and City staff worked alongside our partners to pull out the stops to establish the site quickly for our community.”

Participants must book appointments for testing online or by phone. A healthcare provider visit and health insurance are not required to access testing. For information about this and other drive-thru testing locations in Kitsap County, go to
