The Towns of Hamilton and Wenham are partnering with Beauport Ambulance Services to offer COVID-19 testing for Hamilton and Wenham residents on the following dates:

Saturday, February 27, 2021

Future dates TBD.

Testing will take place in the parking lot of the Miles River Middle School (786 Bay Rd, South Hamilton, MA 01982) from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Please do not arrive prior to 8:30 a.m. You will be asked to leave and return when the testing begins.

Both towns are providing tests only to those that are displaying COVID symptoms and those who have been in close contact with a COVID positive person. Please respect this requirement as resources are limited and failure to adhere could result in a lack of tests available for those in the community that are sick. Patients should bring a completed COVID Symptomatic and Close Contact Test Form, proof of residency and their health insurance policy information.

For those residents that would like to be tested for travel purposes or for peace of mind, Beauport is offering $85 PCR testing on site as well. To take advantage of this low cost testing option, please complete a Self-Pay Test Form prior to arriving to the clinic. Please note that credit card information must be filled out on the form. These forms will be shredded once processed.

All residents that plan on attending one of the test days should pre-register by 4:00 p.m. the day before using the following online form: Hamilton-Wenham Covid-19 Testing Pre-Registration.

Proof of Hamilton or Wenham residency, such as a driver’s license, must be presented to receive a test. Results can be expected three days following testing.

Please bring the following with you to the testing site:

  • Proof of Hamilton or Wenham residency
  • A completed patient application (paper copies will be available on site for those unable to complete the form from home):

This is a PCR, self administered, lower nasal swab test. A staff member will instruct and observe as you swab your own nose using a short swab. Short swab tests more comfortable and still accurate. These are not the dreaded “brain ticklers”!

Yes. Your child can be tested if they meet the testing requirements listed above. If they are old enough to follow simple nasal swirl of a swab instructions, then they can do it themselves.  Otherwise a healthcare professional: e.g., school nurse, EMS, etc. can do it for them.

You should get tested any time, if you develop symptoms. If you are in quarantine, it is good to be tested at the beginning of your quarantine, just in case you are already positive and don’t know it. That way, we can enlarge the “circle of Quarantine” quickly, and help stop the spread. If you have no symptoms, you can get tested on Day 5 of your quarantine and if you are negative, get out of strict quarantine after day 7. See the new guidelines that just came out 12/7/2020 for more info:  https://www.mass.gov/guidance/information-and-guidance-for-persons-in-quarantine-due-to-covid-19

The Mass Dept of  Public Health defines a close contact as someone who has been in contact with a COVID positive person 6ft or nearer for more than a total of 15 minutes over a 24 hr period. If you think you have been a close contact, then get tested and contact your local board of health.

You should expect to receive your test results within 48-72 hours. An email will be sent reporting that your results are available and asking you to log into a secure site so that you can see your result.
