From the desk of Marilyn Booth, Landaff Emergency Management Director;
Starting Wednesday, April 29th, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS), in partnership with the New Hampshire National Guard, will offer COVID-19 testing clinics through fixed and mobile sites across the State. DHHS will be offering testing for 8 hours per day, 7 days a week at fixed sites in the following cities/towns for the next few weeks:
Additionally, on Friday, May 1st DHHS will offer a one-day mobile testing clinic from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Lakes Region Community College located at 379 Belmont Rd, Laconia, NH 03246. Each subsequent day, a different mobile test site will be offered in one of the ten counties. As these locations are finalized, details will be disseminated.
Residents who are experiencing one or more symptoms of COVID-19 should call their healthcare provider to request a test. The healthcare provider will submit an order to DHHS, and residents will receive a call by the Covid19 Coordinating Office to schedule a test at a time and location most convenient to them. Residents who do not have a healthcare provider and/or are uninsured should call 2-1-1 for assistance in scheduling a test. Also, arrangements will be made for those residents with barriers to accessing a fixed or mobile testing site.
Testing continues to be available as well through primary care offices, hospitals, healthcare systems, municipal health departments and ConvenientMD Urgent Centers.
