In what it says is an attempt to increase capacity, the Snohomish Health District today announced it would return drive-thru testing to 39th and Broadway.

The Snohomish Health District is relocating drive-thru testing to a site that will allow for increased capacity. Starting Monday, August 10, the testing will be at 3900 Broadway in Everett. This is the same location where the Health District first opened drive-thru testing back in March. Testing will be in the large parking lot near Everett Memorial Stadium.

The set-up at the Broadway site allows for more testing each day. The District expects to be able to test up to 500 people daily, up from the previous limit of 250-300.

For the week of August 10 the schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, August 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, August 11, from noon to 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, August 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 13, from noon to 7 p.m.
  • Friday, August 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Eligibility criteria remains the same as previous weeks. Registration is now open at www.snohd.org/drive-thru-testing. The Health District is working to move to a different online registration system in the coming weeks, as well as providing a phone number for those without internet access or needing an interpreter.

DATA UPDATES AND COVID ACTIVITY SNAPSHOT

For the last several weeks, we’ve been releasing the weekly snapshot based on metrics and targets for Phase 2. A more detailed weekly report has also been published on Friday afternoons.

While both are continuing, staff will begin issuing them on Mondays. This change will allow epidemiology staff more time to prepare the reports with more complete data aligned with weeks officially ending on Saturdays for data purposes. It will also allow the Health District to be able to better respond to social media questions after reports are released rather than over a weekend.

The Health District had anticipated the final Friday publication being today. However, a data failure occurred with one of the District’s servers this week and the epidemiology team was focused on recovering and rebuilding the data. This means weekly reports are not available today, and will hopefully be released on Monday.

As a reminder, countywide data is available through an interactive dashboard from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) online at www.snohd.org/524/COVID-19-Data-Dashboard. Additional information also is available through DOH’s Risk Assessment Dashboard at https://coronavirus.wa.gov/what-you-need-know/covid-19-risk-assessment-dashboard.
