Testing for COVID-19
Skagit Regional Health is only testing those with symptoms. For travel or return-to-work/school/sports testing, please utilize other community options.
Patients exhibiting new onset cough, fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea or other flu-like symptoms should visit an Urgent Care clinic for COVID-19 testing.
If you are concerned that you may have COVID-19, visit Urgent Care for an assessment by a healthcare professional. No appointments are needed.
If you have a life threatening illness, injury or urgent health condition, you should seek care right away by calling or texting 9-1-1 or visiting the nearest Emergency Room.
We are currently only testing patients in the inpatient setting in certain situations.
We are no longer conducting pre-procedure testing for COVID-19.
Skagit Regional health is currently offering three tests for COVID-19 and information from the FDA on each one is available at the links below:
