TESTING UPDATE:

  • Testing is open at the Yanity Gym, and we appreciate your patience as this new operation continues ramping up to full capacity.  The link on this page above takes you to the Docs website and will allow you to make an appointment on a first-come, first-served basis. Currently, test times are posted 72 hours in advance.   If there are no time slots shown, then that means there are no more tests available on that day.
  • Below you will find a direct link for the Healow portal.  Patients can access their account and results by using the cell phone option of entering their username and date of birth.  A code will be sent to your cell for verification.  For those who used their landlines for contact information, enter your username and password.   The rapid test results should be posted later that day. The PCR test will take a few days. https://mycw83.ecwcloud.com/portal11044/jsp/100mp/login_otp.jsp
  • Other testing locations in the town and area also continue to administer tests and you can use this link to find one that is convenient for you if the Yanity Gym site is full.
