Community Health Center of Cape Cod Offering Asymptomatic COVID-19 TestingNovember 4, 2020
Community Health Center of Cape Cod continues to help individuals on the Cape, Islands and beyond by offering asymptomatic COVID-19 testing for anyone in the community. The Health Center is currently offering testing in their Falmouth office at 210 Jones Road in Homeport and in their Mashpee office at 107 Commercial Street. The Health Center is grateful to Martha’s Vineyard Bank for helping to make this asymptomatic COVID-19 testing program possible. Thanks to a generous donation from the Bank’s Charitable Foundation, the Health Center has been able to add an online scheduling tool at www.CHCofCapeCod.org/coronavirus, making it easier for patients and others in the community to view testing availability and to schedule an appointment. Individuals can also call (508) 477-7090 to make an appointment or to learn more.
Karen Gardner, Chief Executive Officer at Community Health Center of Cape Cod and Christine Conrad, Vice President of Marketing and Solution Development for Martha’s Vineyard Bank kicked off the program at the Health Center’s Falmouth office on Wednesday, November 4. “During this COVID-19 pandemic, so many individuals have expressed an overwhelming fear of the unknown, and uncertainty of the current situation,” Gardner said. “We want to do our part to make it easy for these people in our community to receive testing, and to cope with the challenges presented by COVID-19.”
Community Health Center of Cape Cod will continue to provide symptomatic tests for their patients. This program will now allow anyone the ability to be tested for COVID-19 at the Health Center. This is in response to increased demand from the community for testing, especially with the holidays approaching.
If individuals exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, they are encouraged to call their primary care provider to schedule a symptomatic test. Community Health Center of Cape Cod understands that COVID-19 continues to provide challenges to our community, and partnerships like these with Martha’s Vineyard Bank are a great example of organizations coming together to try to make life easier for our neighbors. If you have any questions about this program, or would like additional information, please call (508) 477-7090 or visit www.chcofcapecod.org.
