County Sets Up Free Covid-19 Testing Site at Fairgrounds

Clackamas County and its health partners are hosting a pop-up Covid-19 testing site through the end of the year at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds.

The site will be open Thursday through Monday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

No insurance or identification is required. Tests are free, with or without insurance.

Canby Fire Division Chief Matt English said the site will be drive-thru and will rely on established processes the district has developed to ensure efficiency as well as safe distancing between paramedics and patients.

English said the site is ideal due to the amount of space, convenient location and the ability to land a Life Flight air ambulance in the event of an emergency medical situation.

Those interested in visiting the site are advised that it will not be offering rapid testing options or Covid-19 vaccinations.
