Coronavirus Skagit

Skagit Regional Health’s COVID-19 testing clinic will close April 19.

Testing of those with symptoms — fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea or other flu-like symptoms — will be moved to the provider's urgent care facilities, according to a news release from the provider.

The provider had ended testing on patients without symptoms on March 26, the release states.

“We are proud to have been an organization that began offering COVID-19 testing to anyone in the community early in the pandemic,” CEO Brian Ivie said in the release. “As other entities have begun offering these services, we are confident that the community need for asymptomatic testing will continue to be met.”

The acute respiratory clinic will be decommissioned and turned back into office space, according to the release.

A list of testing locations in Skagit County is available on the county website at skagitcounty.net/Departments/HealthDiseases/coronavirusdriveup.htm.
