HOW: 
Coronavirus symptoms and testing: According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. If individuals have a cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat or a new loss of taste or smell, they should consider testing. Updated CDC guidelines now also recommend testing for people with and without symptoms under certain conditions.  Whole Health Pharmacy will provide drive-up testing options for eligible patients.  The test is self-administered with a nasal swab and once the sample kit is sealed, our staff submits the test to the lab for processing.  Results are ready in three to five business days.

WHY:
We need widespread coronavirus testing now.  We all want life to return to normal and one way to help is more COVID-19 testing options.  We are fortunate to call Cape Cod our home and proud to serve this community in efforts to fight this virus.
