If you are symptomatic or are asymptomatic and have been directed to seek testing by Public Health and need testing on days the site is closed, you are encouraged to reach out to your primary care provider or local clinic. If you are asymptomatic and have not been directed to seek testing, please do not access testing services at this time. Residents should be aware that Northwest Laboratory, who conducts the tests on specimens collected at the test site, is experiencing significantly increased demands for their services. Due to this increase, residents should expect that results take at least a week to be returned.
