The Acute Respiratory Center (ARC), the COVID-19 testing site at Pen Bay Medical Center (PBMC), is relocating to 731 Commercial St., and will begin testing patients there Oct. 8.

The ARC center is not a walk-in facility and a referral from your primary care provider is required for testing at the ARC. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please contact your provider, who will refer you for testing, if indicated.

If you do not have a primary care provider, call 301-3040 and leave a message.  We will return calls within 24 hours, in the order in which your message have been received.
