November 22, 2021 - COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE

November 22, 2021 – Swinomish Public Health has confirmed three (3) new cases of COVID-19 in the community since the last update Thursday, November 18. There are test results still pending.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! While we are not out of the storm with this pandemic, Swinomish Public Health is feeling grateful to be a part of such a great community that continues to pull together to protect the health and wellbeing of one another during this extremely difficult time.

If you plan to spend the holiday with people from outside your household, please protect those with higher risk of severe infection, such as your elders and people with chronic diseases or weakened immune systems. You can protect them by avoiding crowded spaces, masking, keeping your distance, and making sure there is excellent ventilation – pull out your sweaters and open those doors and windows! If you are sick or have symptoms, do not host or attend any gatherings. Get tested if you have symptoms and test in 5-7 days if you are exposed. Quarantine while waiting for your results.

Testing options while the clinic is closed for the holiday (Nov. 24-29): skagitcounty.net//Departments/HealthDiseases/coronavirusDRIVEUP.htm –OR– go to: testdirectly.com.

Adults 18+ 9:30-11:30 a.m.; pediatrics age 5-11 at 3:30-5 p.m.
Call (360) 466-3167 to schedule your appointment

The clinic is focusing resources on tribal members and their households at this time. If you cannot get your booster at the Swinomish Medical Clinic, please don't let that stop you from getting one if it has been 6 months since your second vaccine.

If you haven’t started your vaccine series yet, it is not too late to get some protection for the holidays. For a full list of vaccination and testing providers, go to skagitcounty.net/coronavirus or call the COVID-19 Information Hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #.
