The Maine CDC is urging anyone who has recently been in contact with members of the Houlton Ambulance crew to get tested for COVID-19.

The latest numbers reveal 9 people in the Houlton region who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, including several members of the Houlton Ambulance Service, and a non-symptomatic patient they transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The other cases involve family members/people who have close daily contact with the ambulance crew.

In response to the outbreak, Houlton Regional Hospital is offering free, drive-up Coronavirus testing. The CDC recommends that anyone who thinks they've had contact with a member of the ambulance crew, dating back to June 8th, should get tested immediately, to help stop the spread of the virus.

They do ask that you call to pre-register for your test at 207-532-2900 and wear a face covering when you show up.
