Update #2 on the airport testing site: Dec. 30

Another update on the airport testing site, Dec 30: The airport testing site is open and Northwest Laboratory expects to operate through 6 p.m. as scheduled. If you have a scheduled appointment at the Meridian testing site, that is also open.

NWL also expects to be open on Friday. The airport site was originally scheduled to close on Friday at 11 a.m., but Northwest Laboratory staff have volunteered to work in the afternoon (weather permitting) to make up appointments from earlier in the week. These slots have already been filled.

Please keep in mind that these dedicated staff are working outside in sub-freezing temperatures. They are well aware of how much the community is depending on testing. Please be patient and respectful; your kind words to them and to the schedulers, who are fielding hundreds of calls, are greatly appreciated.

The airport site will be closed on New Year’s Day, and will resume operations on Jan. 2.
