Appointment Only Testing Site Opens
South Shore Health is taking an additional step to protect the safety of our patients by setting up an alternative COVID-19 testing site at Union Point, Weymouth.
The purpose of this alternative, drive through testing site will be to help reduce the exposure to COVID-19 at South Shore Hospital, our Emergency Department, medical centers, and other provider locations by conducting tests for the virus at this remote location.
Only patients who have been pre-screened and meet state testing guidelines will be registered and given an appointment for the Union Point location.
Those who want to be tested for COVID-19 should call their primary care provider first, unless it is an emergency. That way we can help ensure that testing is appropriate, and reduce potential COVID-19 exposure for healthcare workers and patients.
Patients who do not have a primary care provider may use our Find a Doctor tool for help with locating one.
We thank all of our patients and families for their understanding as we work to ensure the safety of our community during this challenging time.
