  • People tested at the HHS sites at Kingwood Park Community Center and Darrell Tully Stadium receive an email when results are available via the eTrueNorth (eTN)  doineedacovid19test.com portal, whether registration occurred online or on-site.
  • Inquiries about results from HHS sites should be directed to 800-635-8611.
