Drive-up COVID-19 Testing Schedule
SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Snohomish Health District completed its pilot of the rapid test machines and is returning to drive-thru sites similar to the site operated in March.
Thanks to an ongoing partnership with Sno-Isle Libraries, community-based testing will resume at two different locations this week:
- Wednesday, May 20 outside the Sno-Isle Libraries branch located at 9701 271st St NW in Stanwood; and
- Friday, May 22 outside the Sno-Isle Libraries branch located at 6120 Grove St in Marysville.
Registration is now available for Wednesday, with appointments beginning at 9 a.m. and the last slot starting at 2 p.m. Registration for Friday’s location will be opened up on Wednesday.
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.
Criteria for testing and registration details remain the same. Updates and registration information is available at www.snohd.org/drive-thru-testing.
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.
