THE SAFETY OF YOUR EMPLOYEES

COVID-19 presents challenges to employers and the safety of their employees.  Timely COVID-19 testing is a critical part of maintaining a safe and productive work environment.  Employers can now gain direct access to a local clinical lab for COVID-19 testing in Whatcom county through Northwest Laboratory.

EMPLOYEE TESTING

  • Businesses  can work with NWL to request COVID-19 testing for their employees.
  • Contact NWL and request the required forms at CoVid19info@nwlaboratory.com
  • Before collection can occur, employers must submit a completed Requisition Form (1 per employee) and a Consent Form signed by employee.
  • Once the forms are received by the lab, individual employees will be able to visit the on-line scheduling center for a drive-thru collection site appointment.
  • NWL can bill the employer directly for the testing (preferred) or the employee’s insurance can be billed if insurance information is provided.
