SPRINGFIELD, VT (October 1, 2021) – Springfield Hospital and the Vermont Department of Health joined together to offer COVID-19 Drive Through Testing for Springfield area students and families on September 23rd, 24th and 28th. Over six hundred samples were collected and sent out for testing.
The Drive Through Testing was conducted as our community was reporting increasing numbers of students who had been exposed to COVID-19. To help meet the urgent demand for prompt testing, Springfield Hospital collaborated with the Vermont Department of Health in setting up these clinics.
“We recognized that it was important to get this testing done as quickly as possible for the health and safety of our community. We are grateful to the VT Dept. of Health for their efforts and appreciate those that used the drive through testing to enable us all to be safe and healthy”, said Lyndsy McIntyre, MSN, RN, VP of Patient Care Services.
