Snohomish Health District

Health District Opens Call Center

With the increasing number of cases, the call volumes from individuals and businesses have also increased. The Health District opened a new call center to help answer questions related to testing, route calls for those businesses reporting a positive test result in their workforce, or to help those without internet access or needing language interpreter services. That number is 425-339-5278, and the call center will be staffed 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Callers after hours or on weekends can leave a message, which will be returned on the next business day.
