Update on COVID-19 Testing
You may have heard that the state of Maine has widely increased its capacity for COVID testing. At Central Maine Healthcare, we are carefully evaluating both our actual capacity (including the availability of testing supplies such as swabs) and our related ability to loosen our criteria for testing. We will be providing timely updates. Meanwhile, if you may have been exposed to the coronavirus or are having symptoms, please check with your provider so they may guide you through the screening process.
