Swab and Send Site at Nasson Health Care

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services announced today that York County Community Action / Nasson Healthcare in Springvale is among four additional “swab and send” sites offering Covid-19 testing. Tests are currently available to Nasson patients, but will soon be available to the community at large.

The sites will send samples to the Maine CDC’s Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory (HETL) for testing. The tests will be free of charge to any individuals who believe they may have COVID-19, or could have been exposed to the virus, whether or not they have symptoms. A doctor’s referral will not be needed.

“Nasson Health Care welcomes the opportunity to work with the Maine CDC to improve access to coronavirus testing in York County,” said Martin Sabol, Director of Health Services at Nasson Health Care. “We now limit testing to only Nasson patients but plan to welcome community members in the next few weeks. We feel privileged to be working in Maine where strong public health leadership and reasonable prevention measures have kept the impact of COVID-19 low relative to many other states.”
