Today, Skagit County Public Health announced that the final day of testing at the Fairgrounds drive through testing site will be Saturday, March 13, 2021. Further, on February 23rd, testing will be operating on reduced hours from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Many doctor's offices and pharmacies are now offering COVID-19 testing to their patients. Contact your healthcare provider first to see if they offer COVID-19 testing. Those seeking other testing options can also find a list of providers here.
"It is time for Public Health to shift focus and resources to vaccine roll-out,” said Jennifer Johnson, Skagit County Public Health Director. “There are many more testing options available to those in Skagit County compared to when we first opened, and this has allowed Public Health to move in this new direction. It is our goal at Public Health to be responsive to the current needs of our community and we are excited to be able to focus on our mass vaccination location at the Fairgrounds.”
When vaccine supply allows, the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at the Fairgrounds location operates by appointment only.
