Pop-up COVID-19 Testing Sites

June 16, 2020
MassHealth is committed to working with assisters, providers, plans, and other stakeholders to ensure member needs continue to be met during this time. We thank you for your partnership and vigilance as we work together through the challenges of COVID-19.
 
On Monday, June 15th, the Baker-Polito Administration announced the availability of pop-up COVID-19 testing sites throughout the Commonwealth for individuals who have recently participated in large gatherings. These free testing sites will be available at over 50 sites throughout the Commonwealth on Wednesday, June 17th and Thursday, June 18th. The Administration is urging anyone who has attended a large gathering in the past two weeks to get tested for COVID-19 at one of these sites. Test results will be provided to each participant confidentially, and participants are encouraged to share these results with their doctors.
 
A full list of all testing sites is available at www.mass.gov/gettested.
 
Social distancing, wearing face coverings, the frequent use of disinfectant and handwashing have been important to the Commonwealth's efforts to decrease the number and rate of newly confirmed positive cases. COVID-19 can spread easily and quickly in large groups of people who are in close contact. Some people do not have symptoms but may have the virus and could spread the virus to others, including family members.
 
Please share this information with any family, friends, or loved ones that have participated in large gatherings, and encourage them to get tested.
