Community COVID-19 Testing

Who is this service for?

This service is for people who DO NOT have COVID-19 symptoms and DO NOT meet the criteria for a test through their health care provider or the DHHS standing order. For example, people who need a test before they can go to school, work or travel but:

  • Have had no known exposure to the coronavirus and
  • Have no active COVID-19 symptoms 

You do not need to be a current MaineHealth patient or a Maine resident. If you DO have any COVID symptoms, you must contact your health care provider for testing. 

What type of test?

This is a self-administered mid-turbinate nasal swab test. 

Where is my sample sent?

Your sample will be sent to the NorDx laboratory.

How long will it take and how will I get my results?

Test results are sent via secure email and are generally available within 48 to 72 hours. A positive result (detected) means that you currently have COVID-19 and can spread the disease to others. A negative result (not detected) means that you most likely do not have an active COVID-19 infection. A negative test result (not detected) does not mean that you are immune from the virus. 

What is the cost?

The patient cost for a NorDx COVID-19 test is $105.

How do I access this test?

Appointments are required. Complete this form, then call NorDx at 207-396-7830 to make an appointment. Phone lines are available Monday-Friday 7:30 am – 4 pm.
