COVID-19: What to Do

MaineHealth is here to guide you through symptoms, exposures and testing.

Our Services

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, get tested as soon as possible so you can get treatment if necessary.

How do I get a COVID-19 test at Stephens Memorial Hospital?

  • Testing is key to reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus, you may contact your primary care provider (PCP). Your PCP will screen you over the phone and help you make an appointment if a test is recommended.

Do I need an appointment to receive a COVID-19 Test?

  • COVID-19 Testing is by appointment only. We now offer online self-scheduling for patients in need a COVID-19 test at our drive-through testing center on the Stephens campus in Norway. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus, you may self-schedule a drive-through COVID-19 testing appointment at: vaccine.mainehealth.org/testing.

How do I get my test result?

  • Test results are available through our patient portal, MyChart. Information on how to register for MyChart will be provided at the time of your test. We will call you if your test results are positive. Negative COVID-19 test results (only negative results) for children aged 12-17 will also be available in MyChart.

What should I do if my test result is positive?

Testing is an important tool to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Stephens is distributing free at-home COVID-19 test kits through the COVID Care Center (199 Main Street, Norway). Test kits are available, while supplies last, during the hours of operation: Monday –Friday: 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. (No need to call in advance, test kits may be picked up without an appointment)

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 5 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 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.
