After weeks of pressure from our union and community supporters, Mayor Bowser has made free COVID19 testing available to grocery workers who live or work in Washington, DC.

Under the mayor’s order, “critical infrastructure workers (includes grocery store workers, essential government employees, and other workers who continue to report to work in the District)” with or without symptoms are a priority group for testing in the city.

To get tested, make an appointment by calling the Testing Triage Call Center at 1-855-363-0333, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Learn more on the DC government website here:

If you have any difficulty getting tested, please contact us immediately so we can help you out. We are working closely with D.C. government officials to ensure our members can access free testing.
