Discovery Health MD Leads COVID-19 Assessments and Procedures.

Our connections in the Maritime Industry told us early that something was brewing in China.

Since the beginning of this pandemic our team has investigated, collaborated with Washington State and Alaska, and worked with research facilities to get to the bottom of SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19.

Now, in collaboration with the University of Washington, Discovery Health MD has front-line testing and risk reduction strategies for companies like yours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Results are typically available within 24 hours of testing.

Fisherman’s Terminal is now closed.

Test results will be sent to employers and Discovery Health MD. Employees should contact their employer to get a copy of their results.

Test participants will fill out an online consent form and questionnaire prior to testing. The consent form will release test results to their employer, Discovery Health MD, and the University of Washington.

The RT-PCR test is highly specific, which means false positives are unlikely.


The Abbott ARCHITECT IgG immunoassay is reported to be 99.6% specific with a detection of 1 false positive in 1020 specimens in UW internal testing. A false positive serology in unlikely, but not impossible.

If the RT-PCR nasal swab is positive, you will be asked to isolate at home (meaning stay at home, at least 6 feet away from others, with no sharing of bathroom or kitchen facilities) for 2 weeks. Public health will be notified and you would be advised to follow up with your personal doctor.

If the IgG serology (antibody) test is positive, you will be asked to isolate for at least 1 week at home and follow up with your doctor and public health for further recommendations.

Testing is an added measure of protection in case an exposure had occurred.

Quarantine is the best strategy to prevent infection, however, we are starting to see a lot of positive tests in people who do not have symptoms. As we do not know much about this disease, we do not know how widespread it is in the community. It is possible someone could have been inadvertently exposed despite quarantine. It is also possible a serology (antibody) test could be positive from an exposure months ago. 

Yes! We have established a testing station at the Sea-Tac LaQuinta Hotel.

No, our testing requires a qualification process. Please contact us using the form above to begin.

Once the testing appointments are scheduled, you will receive an email with a link to fill out the online consent and questionnaire. You will be asked if you have any current symptoms or recent exposure to someone with possible COVID-19. If you have symptoms, you will not be allowed to test and should seek medical care. You will be asked to provide demographic information and answer some epidemiologic questions including your travel history in the past 60 days. This information will help us to understand the validity of results and allow us to contact you if you have a positive test.

It is very important your name matches your identification exactly.

On the testing day, your ID will be verified and medical professionals will obtain blood samples from a vein and assist you with obtaining the nasal swab specimen. These will be sent to the University of Washington for processing with results provided to your employer on the next day, barring any delay with processing or reporting.

A positive RT-PCR nasal swab means the virus was detected. It does not tell us if you are infectious or not. A negative test means the virus was not detected on the nasal sample. It is possible the virus could still be present in the lungs or elsewhere.

A positive IgG serology (antibody) test means an antibody was detected. Antibodies may appear days to weeks after an infection, but may not appear for 3 weeks or may never appear. A positive antibody test is difficult to interpret with our current understanding of the disease. It may represent recent infection, remote infection, or possibly a false positive. We cannot say anything about immunity at this time. A positive IgG does not mean you are immune. Antibody tests should not be used as the sole test to determine if someone has the disease.

On the testing day, your ID will be verified and medical professionals will obtain blood samples from a vein and assist you with obtaining the nasal swab specimen. It is very important your testing registration name matches your government-issued identification exactly. These will be sent to the University of Washington for processing with results provided to your employer on the next day, barring any delay with processing or reporting.
