Everett Memorial Stadium to host COVID-19 test site again

The site provides capacity for 500 tests per day, the Snohomish Health District said.

EVERETT — Starting Monday, drive-thru COVID-19 testing is coming back to the parking lot at Everett Memorial Stadium, the Snohomish Health District announced Friday.

The larger lot at 3900 Broadway allows the health district to test 500 people each day, up from 250 to 300 at the current McCollum Park site in south Everett. Tests are by appointment only and registration for next week is now open.

People seeking a test do not have to pay. All charges are billed to insurance. If you’re uninsured, the test is free.

To be eligible for a test, patients must be experiencing symptoms like shortness of breath, cough, fever, fatigue, muscle pain, sore throat, congestion or a new loss of taste or smell.

Additionally, tests are available to anyone who is a close contact of a confirmed case; lives in a shelter, group home or assisted living facility; works in a location with a case; is part of a family or social network that has a case; are Black, Latino, Native American or Pacific Islander; or works in health care, law enforcement or emergency response.

Testing will be offered Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m., and Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Everett Memorial Stadium has hosted a test site before.

In March, the health district operated its first drive-thru site at the lot off Broadway. When federal funding ran out, the site closed, and then rotated around the county.
