If you do not have insurance, you can still get tested. Nobody will be turned away for not having insurance, ID, or Social Security Number. If you are insured, bring your insurance card with you. If you do not have your insurance card available, you will need to know your insurance company, ID and group number (if applicable), and the name and birthday of the primary insured if it is not you.

Skagit County Public Health is encouraging anyone who fits into the following guidelines to get tested:

  • Those who are essential workers
  • Anyone with any COVID-19 symptoms
  • Anyone whose physician recommended they be tested
  • Anyone who lives or works in a congregate setting
  • Pregnant women
  • Anyone who is a close contact or has a known exposure to COVID-19

Public Health will test anyone who lives or works in Skagit County, is five years of age or older and feels they need to be tested. However, during the current surge, Public Health encourages people to get tested only if they fall into the above categories.

If you have had a known or probable exposure to COVID-19, you cannot get tested right away. You must wait 8 days before being tested. COVID-19 has a relatively long incubation period, so being tested before 8 days has passed could result in a false negative. If you have questions about this, or any other questions related to COVID-19, please call Public Health at 360-416-1500.

If you have serious symptoms, such as fever higher than 100 degrees, cough and shortness of breath, consult your medical provider or seek care through one of the respiratory clinics in Skagit County.
