Inland to Reopen Drive-Up COVID Test Site
With COVID-19 testing needs increasing, Northern Light Inland Hospital is planning to reopen its Drive-Up COVID-19 testing site in Waterville. The site is located behind Inland Hospital at 200 Kennedy Memorial Drive.
The facility will reopen on Monday, September 13, 2021, by appointment through our Testing website and phone line which will offer appointments starting September 13 (see how to schedule a test below). The testing site will serve the community Monday-Saturday from 8 am – Noon. Symptomatic, asymptomatic (no symptoms), and pre-procedure medical tests (known as AGPs-aerosol generating procedures) will be available, as well as state testing for COVID-19 exposures. Testing for travel is not available through Northern Light Inland Hospital at this time.
Community testing has been occurring at the Northern Light Walk-In Care office at 174 Kennedy Memorial Drive, but due to the current surge in demand, we are moving all testing to the Drive-Up facility as of September 13. The Walk-In Care office will continue to offer non-emergency care, including caring for those with COVID, flu, and cold symptoms.
The Drive-Up facility will offer a self-swab test and accompanying adults should be prepared to swab children under age 12 with guidance. Patients will remain in their vehicle.
