COVID-19 testing sites open, opioid abuse facing ‘mixed bag’

by Ruth Leubecker

As rural Maine receives additional financial help to increase testing, with an intensified emphasis on attracting those without a provider’s order, hope remains that more sites will open in Washington County.

As of July 6, 20 “swab and send” sites have opened from Fort Kent to Portland in attempts to satisfy the demand for tests. Additional mobile sites are also scheduled to launch soon.
