BostonToday, the Baker-Polito Administration launched a revamped testing website, “Get Tested MA,” as a more convenient resource for the public to find information on testing in one place.

The website, available at Mass.gov/gettested, has information on who should get a test, what to do if an individual receives a positive test, and details on the different types of tests available.

It also connects with the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 test site locator, where individuals in need of a test can search for a test site convenient for them.  The map allows for filtering among the more than 250 test sites by features including hours, testing for kids, and drive through options. Before seeking testing at a site, individuals should check the details of each site and call ahead if an appointment is necessary.

The Administration is also launching a new awareness campaign today for testing, including using electronic MassDOT and MBTA billboards throughout the state, as well as social media.

The Administration continues to ramp up the Commonwealth’s testing capacity and access to testing throughout the state. To date, over 926,000 molecular tests have been conducted on over 736,000 people in the Commonwealth. 

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, the Administration stood up over 50 testing sites across the Commonwealth to provide free testing to individuals who had recently attended large gatherings.
