SEA officials announced that Discovery Health will do the testing by appointment only for passengers up to 72 hours prior to their travel. The testing is being done in the central auditorium at SEA, located pre-security on the mezzanine level above ticketing and the security checkpoints. The cost is $250 for COVID-19 PCR lab tests and results are delivered with same- and next-day options.
If a passenger tests positive, Public Health and the CDC will be notified. A member of Discovery Health MD’s medical staff will also contact the passenger to advise to self-isolate for at least 10 days and to notify close contacts for 48 hours prior to the positive test or development of symptoms and request that they self-quarantine for 14 days.
Currently, SEA and Washington state do not require COVID-19 testing prior to travel or quarantines upon arrival.
