Get Tested for COVID-19

​Washington County is partnering with the City of Cottage Grove to offer free COVID-19 testing in the community. Testing is open to everyone, with or without symptoms. No ID or insurance is necessary. Appointments are required. 

COVID testing and related follow-up visits may be available to help pay for some uninsured individuals. Complete the 
MA Coverage for COVID-19 Testing Application if you are uninsured and need coverage for COVID-19 testing.
