WASHINGTON — Public health officials have announced a new wave of free coronavirus testing sites across western Washington.

Health officials say anyone with coronavirus symptoms, like coughing, difficulty breathing, fever, chills and muscle pain, should get tested as soon as possible to find out if they have the disease, so that they can avoid spreading it to others. That's why Public Health - Seattle & King County is providing this list of free testing sites:
