Mobile testing for COVID-19 coming to Watervliet

InterCare Community Health Network, headquartered in Bangor, has received supplemental funding to expand its capacity to test for COVID-19. This expanded testing program consists of mobile teams to cover its four-county service area which includes Berrien County. In an attempt to do mass testing for the coronavirus at apartment complexes two dates and locations have been selected in Watervliet. Their mobile unit will be at Tri-City Village, 541 N. Main Street on Wednesday, July 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Friday, August 7, also from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the unit is scheduled to be at Cobblestone Village Apartment Homes, 8788 Cobblestone Rd., Watervliet. To get tested for COVID-19, people are not required to have a doctor’s order and do not have to be an InterCare patient. For more information, call 855-869-6900.

They are open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; certain restrictions apply such as social distancing and only four computers are available for public use. The staff is all wearing masks and asks that everyone wear a mask coming to the library, but if you cannot for medical reasons, please let them know. Reservations are accepted to use the public computers if it is needed. Copies and fax are available. The new Hartford Public Library/ Arthur & Bonna Vanderlyn Community Center is still under construction. There have been delays due to the COVID-19 lock down. The new building should be mostly completed in mid-July. Their expected move-in will be sometime in August. Everyone at the library is very excited for the Hartford area and are eternally grateful to Bonna Vanderlyn for her donation. Without her donation, this project would have not been possible. This is a much needed facility for Hartford.
