"Swab and Go" Testing Sites Closing

Date: 07/01/2021

As the number of Mainers vaccinated against COVID-19 continues to expand and cases decrease, Northern Light Health continues to respond to the pandemic in real time based upon the needs of our communities. 

“Swab and Go” testing sites to close

The success of getting Mainers vaccinated against COVID-19 over the past six months has led to a decreased demand for testing and has made it possible to move testing services to medical offices and pharmacy settings. As a result, all Swab and Go testing sites will be closing and testing will be moving to alternate locations. 

  • August 1, 2021: Portland, Ellsworth, and Blue Hill area Swab and Go locations will close.

  • July 1, 2021, all other regional Swab and Go sites will close.

Up to date, regional details on new testing and vaccination sites can be found on the Northern Light Health website by clicking on Coronavirus Update. 

It is important to note that Northern Light Health’s rapid response COVID-19 testing team will continue their work to support organizations and communities addressing outbreaks.
