Below are the steps required for testing: (Link for full instructions from Cape Cod Health)
- If you are experiencing symptoms, including fever, coughing or shortness of breath, call your doctor.
- Your doctor will screen you over the phone to assess if you should be tested.
- If your doctor determines you should be tested, he or she will provide an electronic order for the test which is sent directly to the testing facility.
- Cape Cod Healthcare staff will then call you to set up an appointment for testing. Note: You need a doctor’s order to be tested. Testing cannot be performed on anyone without a doctor’s order and we will have to turn away those arriving at the testing site without a doctor’s order and an appointment.
