COVID-19 test sites headed to Snohomish, Monroe libraries

Each site will offer tests for one day this week. Tests will continue at McCollum Park in Everett.

EVERETT — Coronavirus test sites will pop up at libraries in Snohomish and Monroe this week, the Snohomish Health District announced Friday.

Tests will be administered Wednesday at the Monroe Library, 1070 Village Way, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Friday, the site will move to the Snohomish Library, 311 Maple Ave., from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Snohomish Health District’s McCollum Park testing site will open Tuesday from 9 a.m to 2 p.m., Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All tests are by appointment only. To be eligible, patients must be experiencing symptoms like a fever greater than 100.4 degrees, cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or a loss of taste or smell. Close contacts of a COVID-19 patient, or those exposed to the virus at long-term care facilities, shelters, meat-packing plants or correctional facilities, are also eligible. Law enforcement, health care and emergency services workers can also be tested. Additionally, you qualify for testing if it’s required for a health procedure, employment or travel.

Results will be available two to three days after the test is administered.

Unlike in King County, the health district hasn’t expanded its testing criteria to anyone who’s participated in a protest in the past few weeks.

Protesters should consider pursuing testing elsewhere, self-quarantining for 14 days and avoiding contact with people who are more vulnerable to severe illness, including those who are older than 60 or who have underlying medical conditions, said Kari Bray, a health district spokeswoman.

If protesters experience any COVID-19 symptoms, they should immediately seek a test, she said.
