Spokane, Wash. – MultiCare Rockwood Clinic has partnered with Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) to provide COVID-19 testing to residents living in Airway Heights and the surrounding area, beginning this Friday, June 19. To minimize possible COVID-19 exposure to others, patients with COVID-19 symptoms are asked to not go inside the clinic for testing. Instead, a curbside testing option will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

 To be assessed for a COVID-19 test, during curbside testing clinic hours, please follow these instructions:

  • The clinic is located at 10414 W. Highway 2, Suite 10. Please park in the lot just east of Jack-in-the-Box (signs will be posted).
  • Call the clinic number, posted on the sign, to let them know you are there and to receive further instructions.
  • Patients who receive a test will be contacted by SRHD to share results of their test and provide further guidance, including when it is safe to return to work.
  • The clinic is not able to re-test patients wanting documentation to return to work. 

Individuals who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, regardless of age or health status, should be assessed for COVID-19 testing. Symptoms include:
