Yes, while our Test-to-Fly program geared toward individuals traveling through airports in the Seattle-Tacoma area we can accommodate testing for anyone at our dedicated sites. You do not need a transiting ticket to be tested.


We have a robust protocol and risk management program, designed specifically for your organization’s needs. Please follow this link to learn more: Test-to-Work


First you will need to visit our bookings page, which can be found here: Test-To-Fly Booking

Once the testing appointments are scheduled, you will receive an email with a link to fill out the online consent and questionnaire. You will be asked if you have any current symptoms or recent exposure to someone with possible COVID-19. If you have symptoms, you should not test and should seek medical care. You will be asked to provide demographic information and answer some questions including your travel history in the past 60 days. This information will help with contact tracing efforts  if you or your party have a positive result.

It is very important your name matches your identification exactly.

On the testing day, your ID will be verified and our medical staff will assist you with obtaining the nasal swab specimen. These will be sent to one of our partner laboratories for processing.


Our testing process is highly adaptable to the needs of our commercial and remote clients. Please visit our Test-to-work page to learn more about how we can best serve your organization.

You will schedule any paperwork you need to be processed with the on-site testing administrators on the day you test. Please note that there is a $25 fee for the paperwork. 

If your travel destination requires forms, documents, lists, signatures, or seal stamps to be filled out, you will be required to schedule a time with the on-site admin for you to come back. The administrators will discuss with you the best plan of action to match your travel plans and needs.  

  • Present the list of items (Passport Number, DOB, Date, forms, etc.)  
  • PICKUP can ONLY happen once the results have been posted to the client’s account on the Discovery Health portal. 

We cannot provide Fit To Fly documents. 

We are not accepting or billing insurance for payment of any kind. 

The Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner FAQ states that insurance will cover testing and treatment for medically-necessary services, while our testing is meant to serve people looking for asymptomatic and travel testing. Travelers may contact their insurance company to find out whether they can be reimbursed for travel testing. Proof of payment receipt can be requested at the time of check in OR contact us at [email protected]

Receipts are not provided automatically upon check-in.
