The Town of Hanson and the Accu Reference Medical lab will host a COVID-19 drive-through testing clinic on Saturday, Dec. 19 and Sunday, Dec. 20 at the Hanson Middle School, 111 Liberty Street from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Everyone (non-Hanson residents, also) are welcome to participate whether they have health insurance or not. All participants must be at least 1 year old.
There is no cost for those participants who are uninsured. The contractor is receiving money from the federal government to cover the costs of participants who are uninsured.
Please bring your health insurance card (if applicable) and a government picture identification card such as a driver’s license along with a completed registration form under the Board of Health tab at hanson-ma.gov. If you could make a copy of your license and health insurance card and bring it with the completed registration form it would expedite the process.
You do not need to have your physician sign the form.
All participants must remain in their vehicles at all times (this testing is available for drive-ups only; no walk-ins). All participants should leave adequate time to wait in line for testing and the length of the wait time depends on the number of participants. No appointments will be made.
The test will be the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)/Molecular test (the nasal swab test). Results will be available within 48-72 hours. Results will be obtained by accessing Accu Reference Medical Lab patient portal at https://results.accureference.com/patientportal/index.html – If you do not have access to the web site, you can call 877-733-4522.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health will be notified about all positive and negative test results. The Town will receive information about positive test results for residents of Hanson through the State’s MAVEN system.
