The Vermont Department of Health will be conducting a swabbing clinic to collect nasal specimens at the Upper Valley Aquatic Center in Hartford on Saturday, May 16th, from 0900 – 1500. This sample site will be open to the general public but we are directing messaging to first responders, select healthcare workers, and childcare providers who are at high risk, as well as other ‘essential’ services which have had public contact throughout COVID-19. The Health Department has started to plan events such as these to assist with the Governor’s goal of testing 7,500 individuals a week. Testing will be done by appointment only.
Seasonal residents and travelers who are in self-quarantine for 14 days and are past day 7 in their quarantine period may also sign up for this testing in order to ‘fast track’ their ability to integrate back into society.
Please note, this testing is designed for asymptomatic individuals ONLY. Those with symptoms of COVID_19, no matter how mild, should still contact their primary care physician to schedule evaluation and testing.
Saturday, May 16, 9 a.m.- 3 p.m.
Upper Valley Aquatic Center, 100 Arboretum Ln, White River Jct. VT 05001
Registration is required. Sign up at: https://humanresources.vermont.gov/content/covid-19-testing-events
