Response to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) outbreak in Snohomish County is an evolving situation.
With the safety of the public and first responders as our priority, Marysville Fire District is following guidance from county and state health officials on best practices to minimize spread of this illness.
What Is Marysville Fire District Doing Differently?
Marysville firefighter/EMTs and paramedics are playing an important role in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, as we dispatch to treat sick patients.
Our number one priority is keeping our community and first responders safe. That is why we are taking measures to further reduce the risk of spreading this virus:
Firefighters continue to respond to all emergency calls. If you do need to call 911 for any reason, it is critical to tell the dispatcher if you have symptoms including a cough, fever or difficulty breathing so firefighters can respond with appropriate equipment.
Patients who may have contracted COVID-19 but are not experiencing severe symptoms are encouraged to call your healthcare provider instead of calling 911.
How Do I Get Vaccinated?
The COVID-19 vaccine is available to people 12 years and older. For information on current vaccine eligibility and a general list of vaccine providers, click here.

What If I'm Already Sick?
If you believe you may have contracted COVID-19 and are experiencing mild symptoms, please call your primary care doctor instead of calling
911. In general, Snohomish Health District advises patients feeling sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing to call your health care provider before going to get care. They can provide instructions for seeking care so that you do not expose others.
