Keep Maine Healthy
The State of Maine has expanded its COVID-19 testing capacity. Under a standing order (PDF), anyone in Maine who is at elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 may get a test at participating sites, without the need for a test order from their own health care provider.
However, people are encouraged to contact their provider with concerns about COVID-19. Examples of people who can get tested under this standing order include those who work in settings where they are more likely to encounter infected people, like hotels or grocery stores, and people visiting Maine from places with relatively high COVID-19 prevalence. A number of sites in Maine are providing COVID-19 tests to anyone at elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19, with or without symptoms, as described in the standing order. Those sites are listed below. As noted, a subset of the sites are "swab and send" locations that are providing tests under a contract with DHHS. The swab and send sites send samples to the State lab for testing and offer sample collection free of charge.
In addition to these sites, some sites are available to people at elevated risk, but limit testing to their own patients, or people with an order from their primary care provider. People interested in a test should call ahead and ask questions about access, hours, and costs.
A list of all testing sites in Maine can also be found at Get-Tested-COVID19.org.
This list and the website are being updated frequently in collaboration with Maine DHHS.
