Instructions for Arrival
To keep everyone safe, please do the following:
- Follow the instructions on the signs.
- When you arrive, please call (603) 448-3122 and ask for extension 5930 to register.
- Stay in your vehicle the entire time you are here and keep windows shut until you are asked to open them.
- Please properly wear a face mask and follow our visitor's policy.
- No photos or videos are allowed.
- Please note that some dogs have been found to act aggressively or distressed during testing as it may feel uncomfortable to their owner. Therefore, we ask that all dogs, unless it is a service animal or the dog is in a kennel or behind a gated section, be left at home for this quick test as bringing your dog may result in a cancellation of the test .
What to Expect during the Test
This test uses a nasal swab to collect the specimen. A health care provider will insert a 6-inch long swab (similar to a long and thin Q-tip) into the cavity between the nose and mouth (nasopharyngeal swab) for 15 seconds and rotate it several times. The swab is then inserted into a container and sent to a lab for testing.
- The fastest way to view your results is in your myD-H account. Visit myD-H.org to learn more or set up an account.
- We will call you with your test results during the weekday hours of 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
- Symptomatic patients should please stay quarantined at home while awaiting your test results.
APD will bill your insurance. If you don't have insurance, we'll help you apply for the NH COVID-19 Testing Benefit.
