(Hyannis, MA – August 17, 2021) -- Cape Cod Healthcare has announced it will expand COVID-19 Testing access at its two drive-through community testing sites located on the campuses of Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital, in response to the recent surge in positive cases in Barnstable County.

Hours: Daily from 7:30 – 11 a.m. and 3:30 – 6 p.m.
