  • A new at-home rapid COVID-19 antigen test is now on its way to pharmacies nationwide.
    The Abbott BinaxNOW COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization for self-testing without the need to ship samples to a lab or for a prescription from your healthcare provider. Check your local Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS pharmacies for availability.  The cost of a 2 test kit is expected to be in the range of $23.00.

    Beginning Thursday, April 22nd, Northwest Laboratories will be offering drive-through COVID-19 Testing in the Burlington Outlet Mall parking lot, located at 448 Fashion Way, Burlington, WA 98233.

    The Testing Site is available to anyone, at any age, needing or wanting a test.  This new testing location will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:30 am-11:45 am and 1:15 pm-4:30 pm. Testing is provided by appointment only. Appointments can be made online at www.testdirectly.com or by phone at (360) 543-6904. Both the call center and the Testing Site will have bilingual staff available.

  • COVID-19 positive case notification protocol:

    We work closely with the health department when there is a confirmed case associated with our schools. Here are the steps we follow for confirmed cases of COVID-19.

    1. When we learn of a case of COVID-19, we first confirm with the health department that the confirmed case is associated with our schools.
    2. Our district has COVID safety teams who help initiate contact tracing. If there are close contacts of a confirmed case, we work with the health department to notify staff and parents/guardians that there has been contact with a confirmed case.
    3. The next steps are determined by the health department, which may include recommendations for COVID testing, isolation and/or quarantine. We communicate directly to impacted staff and families and share resources according to the guidance of the health department.
    4. In some cases, a group of students will shift to remote learning for a period of time designated by the health department.  

    The COVID safety team utilizes a confidential contact tracing dashboard we use in collaboration with the department of health to track families who are in quarantine/isolation and students with symptoms.
