Helping Public Health Leaders Track the Spread of Coronavirus
To slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we need to learn more about it. That's where you come in. SCAN is testing both healthy and sick people to understand how the virus is spreading in King County. The findings will help our partners, including Public Health – Seattle & King County, keep people informed and make the best possible, data-driven decisions to protect our community.
The SCAN Assessment Kit
Everyone who takes part in this effort will help us understand how coronavirus is spreading in the Greater Seattle area. We are increasing capacity and responding to public health priorities as they come up. We may not be able to send a home swab kit to everyone.
Please note that being a part of SCAN does not take the place of medical care. If you’re severely ill, such as having trouble breathing, please contact a doctor or other healthcare provider right away.
How It Works
Whether you’re healthy or sick, you or a family member may be able to support public health by collecting your own nasal swab at home and returning it to us. We won’t be able to take samples from everyone. Those who take part will help our local public health leaders learn more about coronavirus and how to slow its spread.
Getting started is easy:
- Click below to answer a few questions, starting with your ZIP code.
- If possible, we’ll send a swab kit to your home.
- Follow the directions in the kit, including how to return it to us.
- Your swab will be tested. If your results show you may have coronavirus, you will be contacted by a health care worker on behalf of public health. If your swab results show you likely do not have coronavirus, you will not be directly contacted.
For all SCAN participants, more detailed information on your swab test results will be made available on our confidential results portal.
Public Health Resources
We know it’s hard to keep up with all the facts about coronavirus and how to protect your family. That’s why we’ve created this list of resources from local, state, and national public health experts. From the CDC to Public Health – Seattle & King County, these are the most trusted sources available.
