Public Notice on Drive-Thru tent
South Shore Health has taken an additional step to protect the safety of our patients by setting up a COVID-19 testing site at Union Point, Weymouth.
Patients who have COVID-19 symptoms and are deemed eligible for a sample collection and subsequent testing at an approved lab will be registered and given an appointment. Only patients 12 years of age and older will be tested.
Patients must be pre-screened and meet state testing guidelines in order to take advantage of testing at the Union Point location, by appointment only. There is no cost for this service.
Information on the tent location will be given at registration. Valid identification, such as a Mass. driver’s license, is needed to confirm registration on site.
The purpose of the drive-thru tent is to help reduce the exposure to COVID-19 at South Shore Hospital, our Emergency Department, ambulatory centers, and other provider locations.
The drive-thru tent at Union Point is located at the intersection of Shea Memorial Drive and Cummings Road, just off of Patriot Parkway/Bill Delahunt Parkway.
Patients who are experiencing severe symptoms, such as respiratory distress, should seek emergency care.
Please refer to the CDC website for detailed information on COVID-19 symptoms.
