Types of Requests

Hand Sanitizers for Community Partners, Cities, Schools and King County Departments

The prioritization for the distribution of these items is based on our county’s commitment to implementing an equitable response to the COVID-19 pandemic, centered on community and health justice. The priority populations are those who have had disproportionately high COVID-19 incidence rates throughout the pandemic, disproportionately low vaccination rates since vaccines have been available, and higher rates of chronic health conditions that increase risk for severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death after infection with COVID-19. These are our historically underserved, socially vulnerable populations as well as programs and organizations that provide necessary services to these populations. Many of these populations are concentrated in South and Southeast King County and so much of our distribution focuses on organizations in those geographic areas.  

Please use this form  to request items from Public Health- Seattle & King County to share out in your work with the community, particularly with vulnerable populations most impacted by the pandemic or in areas with high transmission rates. These items can be reordered each week and are also available to cities, schools and King County departments while supplies last. 

We cannot guarantee that you will receive the amount requested; however, we will attempt to fill requests as completely as possible. Please send in your submissions by 12:00 pm (noon) on Tuesdays. Requests that come in past that time will be included in the following fulfillment order. For more information, please contact us at

 Rapid Antigen Test Kits

For over the counter (OTC) rapid antigen test kits, please use this form to request test kit and testing supplies (for certain eligible requestors) from Public Health- Seattle & King County. All requests are accepted but not guaranteed. The King County Emergency Management COVID Logistics Team distributes supplies (when we can obtain them) based on priority and we currently have much more demand than supply.  The weekly deadline for test kit requests is noon on Tuesdays and approved orders are shipped the following week, due to lead time needed for processing. Requests that come in past that time will be evaluated for approval the following week. There is no need to place multiple orders if your order is not fulfilled. We will fill orders that meet our criteria when we have enough supply to meet all qualifying orders. For more information, please see our Self-test kits distribution program page about requesting test kits. 

BinaxNOW Pro Rapid antigen test kits can be requested using this form, but the tests have been restricted to internal requestors for now.

Please note: Requests for testing supplies are limited to the items listed on the form. No personnel or PPE will accompany your request. Testing kits are not for for-profit businesses or for individuals making requests for their own personal use.
