Drive-up COVID-19 Testing Schedule for Week of June 8


SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – Thanks to the recent appropriation of CARES Act funding, the Snohomish Health District is significantly expanding community-based testing operations this month.

Beginning this week, there will be one stationary site operating 2-3 days per week, and a mobile operation moving around the county 1-2 days per week. There will also be some early evening and weekend options throughout the month.

The schedule for the week of June 8 is as follows:

  • Thursday, June 11 – noon to 7 p.m. at McCollum Park located at 600 128th St SE in Everett
  • Friday, June 12 – 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sno-Isle Libraries branch located at 6120 Grove St in Marysville
  • Saturday, June 13 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McCollum Park

Testing will continue to be available to individuals with any of the symptoms:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

However, the eligibility criteria is also being expanded to include asymptomatic individuals who:

  • Are a close contact of a confirmed case,
  • Live in a congregate setting, like a shelter, group home or assisted living facility, or
  • Work in a location that has had an outbreak, or
  • Work in healthcare, EMS, law enforcement or other fields where work settings have a higher risk of catching or spreading COVID-19. 

Registration is now open at www.snohd.org/drive-thru-testing.

These community-based testing sites are being operated by the Snohomish Health District, with volunteer support from the Medical Reserve Corps. This test will not use the rapid test machines, but rather the regular nasal swabs that are sent to a lab. Results are expected to be communicated back to individuals within 2-3 days.

The community is encouraged to help prevent the spread of illness and to support the response to this outbreak by staying informed and sharing reliable information. This is a very fluid situation and information will be updated at www.snohd.org/ncov2019 and the Health District’s social media channels.
