Testing with COVID-19 Symptoms

Exterior of Skagit Regional Clinics - RiverbendSkagit Regional Health has made changes to COVID-19 testing services. Click here for the recent update announcement. 

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.

Skagit Regional Health testing for patients experiencing symptoms is available at all three Urgent Care locations; Mount Vernon, Riverbend and Smokey Point.

If you are concerned that you may have COVID-19, visit Urgent Care for an assessment by a healthcare professional. No appointments are needed.

  • Patients seeking care at these locations will be given a restaurant-style buzzer and will wait in their car until their buzzer goes off to let them know it’s time to return into the clinic for care.

All patients must wear face coverings at all times.

If you have a life threatening illness, injury or urgent health condition, you should seek care right away by calling 911 or visiting the nearest Emergency Room.

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:

  • BioFire Respiratory Panel 2.1 (A molecular PCR test performed at CVH and SVH laboratories, other organisms and viruses are also tested in the panel besides COVID-19)
  • Fact Sheet for Patients: Abbott BinaxNOW™ (A COVID-19 antigen test, used for screening purposes primarily for employees and in the point of care setting)
  • Fact Sheet for Patients: BD Veritor™ (A COVID-19 antigen test, used for screening purposes in a point of care setting)

Your provider should be able to tell you which test was performed on your specimen.  If you are tested the results are also visible in your “My Chart” account. Please note that individuals between the ages of 13 – 17 are not eligible for a MyChart account.
