Message to the Community: New COVID-19 Testing Site in Plymouth
You only need a referral from your healthcare provider!
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the New Hampshire Army National Guard have opened a new COVID-19 testing site in Plymouth, open seven days a week from 11am to 7pm.
The DHHS goal is to increase the availability of testing throughout the region to ensure that any resident who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will get tested.
You should get tested if you have symptoms of the coronavirus, such as: fever, cough, shortness of breath, mild flu-like symptoms, cold symptoms, runny noses, sore throats, fatigue, myalgias, chills, anosmia, or skin changes.
Getting a test starts with a phone call to your healthcare provider for a referral. Your provider will then contact the State’s COVID-19 coordinating office, and they will call you to schedule your test. Your results will be sent to your healthcare provider, and your insurance will be charged for the test. If you have symptoms and do not have a health care provider, call 2-1-1 to make arrangements.
For more information on the State’s response to the COVID-19 emergency, please visit: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/ or call 2-1-1.
