The town of Hingham is partnering with a private company to open a COVID-19 testing site at the former Hingham light plant in South Hingham.
Tests will be available by appointment from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays starting Dec. 10, according to a statement from the Board of Selectmen.
Tests will be done on people of all ages, with or without symptoms. However, people without symptoms, or without health insurance, will be billed $140 at the time of the test.
“The town’s residents and employees deserve ready access to a testing facility that accepts reservations, where testing can be done in a safe environment, and that provides high-quality test results,” Selectman Joe Fisher said in the statement.
The company doing the testing – mPathy – has a similar site in Brookline. Founder Jackson Stone lives in Hingham and wanted to bring the services to his hometown, the statement said.
