New Hampshire Health and Human Services will open five new coronavirus testing centers across the state, Gov. Chris Sununu said Monday.
The new centers will be located in Claremont, Lancaster, Plymouth, Tamworth, and Rochester.
The state aims to provide testing for all residents with symptoms. Officials encouraged residents with even mild symptoms to seek testing, New Hampshire Health and Human Services Commissioner Lori Shibinette said.
These locations will require a referral from an insurance provider and are intended for residents who are unable to access hospital-based clinics.
The new testing centers will be staffed eight hours a day, seven days a week by the National Guard and the Metropolitan Medical Response System, Sununu said.
New Hampshire has tested at least 18,200 people, Shibinette said.
