WEBSTER, MA, September 14, 2020 – Today Harrington HealthCare System opened its second COVID-19 Rapid Testing Site to the public. The new site is located on the Harrington HealthCare at Webster campus, at 340 Thompson Road in Webster. Patients can now schedule an appointment on a user-friendly online check-in form. A doctor’s order is NOT required to be tested, however an appointment is required and patients must be at least five years old. In most cases, rapid testing is performed with same-day results.
The public can make an appointment to receive a drive-through test at the Webster site Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Appointments may be made online at harringtonhospital.org/rapidtesting.
Harrington HealthCare also operates a second COVID-19 Rapid Testing Site at its Urgent Care Express location at 78 Sutton Avenue in Oxford. Appointments for testing at that location are available seven days per week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and may be made online at harringtonhospital.org/urgent/oxford.
“Anyone who has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 is encouraged to make an appointment at one of our rapid-testing sites as soon as possible, or if symptoms are severe, head straight to the Emergency Department,” said Ed Moore, Harrington HealthCare System President and CEO.
“As the pandemic continues, our goal is to continue to meet the needs of the communities we serve for testing and treatment. This second rapid-testing site will allow greater access to the community for testing, which is especially important as we head into the fall and winter months when an uptick in COVID-19 transmission is possible,” Moore said.
