Testing is an important tool to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Get a free at-home COVID-19 test kit (while supplies last) at the Stephens Memorial Hospital COVID-19 Care Center (199 Main Street, Norway) Monday – Friday: 8:30 - 11:30 am. No appointment required for test kit pick-up.
The test kits being distributed are authorized for home use only in individuals ages 2 and older with results in ten minutes. The kits are provided by The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control at-home COVID-19 tests can be used under the following circumstances:
- For anyone experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
- At least five days after a known exposure to someone with COVID-19
- Immediately before going to a large gathering or indoor event with people who are at risk of severe disease or may be unvaccinated
Vaccination is the best way to avoid serious illness due to COVID-19. MaineHealth recommends that people age 6 months and older get vaccinated as soon as possible. If you are eligible for a booster shot but have not yet received one, we encourage you to get one now. Boosters strengthen your immune system and provide an extra layer of protection. Stay up to date to help protect yourself, your family, and your community.
If you have an upcoming appointment with your primary care provider, you can ask to receive your booster at that appointment. Our primary care practices (Western Maine Primary Care and Western Maine Pediatrics) continue to support vaccine administration during patient visits.
Our COVID-19 Care Center is currently offering COVID-19 vaccines and boosters (for ages 18+) with limited availability, by appointment only.
Several local pharmacies, such as Walgreens, Walmart and Hannaford, administer COVID-19 vaccine and boosters. The State of Maine also maintains a list of community vaccine sites.
