Coronavirus Skagit

Skagit County Public Health’s COVID-19 clinic at the fairgrounds in Mount Vernon will reopen for testing Thursday, after having been shut down because of winter weather.

Site hours are 3-7 p.m.

Vaccinations will resume Monday, according to a news release from the county.

The release also states that the site will stay open through February amid a surge in demand for testing. The county had initially announced it would close Jan. 28.

Hours will change slightly on Monday, with services available 3-6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Also beginning Monday, vaccinations will no longer be provided in a drive-thru model. They will be given in the A/B Building at the fairgrounds.

Testing will continue to be limited to those who live, work or attend school in Skagit County, and either have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, the release states.

The site is on the south side of the fairgrounds, 501 Taylor St., Mount Vernon.
