Stop the Spread

The Commonwealth is launching a strategic testing program in communities across Massachusetts that have continued to see a higher number of residents testing positive for COVID-19.

This program will support the testing of asymptomatic individuals in these communities to help stop the spread of COVID-19. If you are a resident of one of these communities, even if you have no COVID symptoms, please get tested to help stop the spread.

The Commonwealth urges residents of these communities to get tested for COVID-19:

Brockton, Chelsea, Everett, Fall River, Framingham, Holyoke, Lawrence, Lynn, Marlborough, Methuen, New Bedford, Randolph, Revere, Salem, Saugus, Springfield, Winthrop, and Worcester. 

This testing is free for all Massachusetts residents.

In addition, the Commonwealth has launched a free drive-through Express COVID-19 Testing Site in Revere. An interactive map of all COVID-19 test locations can be found here.
