Traffic Change Starts TODAY at CBC’s West Pasco COVID Test Site
Please note that there has been a change of traffic flow plan put in place at the CBC-West Pasco testing site to better accommodate overflow traffic beginning today, November 24, 2020, at 8:30 a.m.
The NEW entrance for the COVID testing site at CBC is now on FARM ROAD and Argent. This is the next intersection east of where the entrance has been. With the soaring number of tests being done each day, traffic bas been backing up onto Argent Road with alarming frequency.
This new entrance at Farm Road and Argent will give a longer approach to the test site with more ability to route cars through the vacant parking lot, keeping vehicles off of Argent Road.
There were over 880 samples taken on Monday, November 23rd. The site continues to attract more people, and that means longer lines. Volunteers and organizers urge the public to please understand that registering on the web site, will help you complete the test faster, but will not get you through the testing site faster.
The registration page is used for all of the University of Washington medical facilities, they cannot change the language on the website. Your patience with the teams working the test site, is greatly appreciated as they are doing all they can.
The test site is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day. Sometimes, they have to shut off the line early, in order to be done testing the last car by 4:00 p.m. so that they can get the testing sample sent off each day.
