If the person tests positive, they will be provided additional instructions by the Snohomish County Health District. If there are concerns or questions, people are encouraged to review this guidance for exposed people and contact their healthcare provider.

The health district is also encouraging people who attended large graduation parties or Father’s Day celebrations to get tested as a precaution. 

Large parties could become so-called "super-spreader" events that can infect a large number of people and spread the virus, the health district said.
