Sign up for an appointment

Go to https://redcap.link/Snohomish-COVID-Testing. You will be prompted to answer a series of questions. Answer them honestly. If you meet criteria for testing, you will be provided with a testing identifier number. Then you will be directed to a page where you can sign up for a time slot using that identification number.

If multiple people plan to arrive for testing in the same vehicle, they must each complete the online screening and have a unique identifier number.

You must have an appointment, a testing identifier number and photo ID ready when you arrive at the testing site.

When and how will I receive results?

Estimated turnaround for results is 3-5 days. Please keep in mind that the exact timing may vary. You will receive a phone call.

A few days after I was tested, I received a call from an 800 number, or my phone carrier listed as potential spam. How do I know this is a real call? 

FEMA and HHS have contracted with businesses to create a national call center. We understand calls should come from 833-447-0001, but it is possible that the number varies slightly. The call center’s script should begin with “Hello, my name is __________ from __________. May I speak with __________?”

They are asking me to validate a lot of personal information on the call. Should I give that to them?

The call center has been instructed to confirm your date of birth and/or address including city, state, and ZIP code. This must match what was used to register for your appointment. They will not ask for your social security number or request payment information. 

I missed several calls from that number, but they didn’t leave a message. How can I call back?

The call center currently only has an outbound number, and is not able to receive inbound calls. However, we have been told they will continue calling until they make contact with someone. Agencies like ours have been sharing requests for them to have a number where those tested can call with questions. If that changes, we’ll make sure that gets updated on our website.

Can you make sure my phone number is correct?

We are not able to make adjustments to the system. If you do not receive a call in 3-5 days, you can try logging into the Quest Diagnostics portal to retrieve your results.

I was told my test was positive/negative, but how do I get documentation for my employer?

Your COVID-19 sample was processed by Quest Diagnostics. To access your test results, you can go to MyQuest.Questdiagnostics.com. On the homepage, click the green “Create an Account” button. If you already have an account with Quest Diagnostics, you can simply Sign In. Your name, date of birth, address and phone number must match what was entered when you registered for your appointment. Note that it may take up to 48 hours after results are complete for the system to be updated.

What if I don’t have symptoms but someone I know does?

Testing is only available to people who have symptoms and meet the criteria above.

Is this the only testing option?

No. This expands testing options, but does not replace existing testing offered by many local healthcare providers. We still encourage you to contact your medical provider by phone or online if you have symptoms. They may refer you for testing, but remember, not everyone needs to be tested and most people can recover at home.

How many people will be tested each day?

We can test a maximum of 250 people per day.

Are you testing for other illnesses, too?

No. This site is specifically for COVID-19 testing.

It says testing is full. What do I do?

We are working to add more appointments. Please monitor this page or social media for updates when more slots are released. If your symptoms worsen, please contact your healthcare provider for further instructions.

My symptoms have cleared or i was tested elsewhere. How do I cancel an appointment?

Starting with appointments the week of March 30, the system includes a cancellation link in the confirmation email you receive when you sign up for an appointment. Please use that cancellation link if you need to cancel an appointment.

Why isn’t everyone being tested?

We have limited resources for testing (testing kits, staff, personal protective equipment for medical providers). We have to prioritize. For people who have mild symptoms, are not high risk, and are not working in a job that provides critical services, a positive test result would not change how they should handle their illness. Stay home, avoid contact with others, and make sure you are resting, hydrating and eating healthy meals. There is no vaccine or cure at this time. Read more about what to do if you have COVID-19.
