'm writing to let you know about two COVID-19 testing resources.
Stop the Spread Initiative
You might have read about Massachusetts' new "Stop the Spread" initiative in the news. This initiative is offering free testing to people with or without symptoms in eight cities and towns especially hard-hit by COVID-19: Chelsea, Everett, Fall River, Lawrence, Lowell, Lynn, Marlborough, and New Bedford. You do not need to be a resident of one of those cities or towns to get a test through this initiative. This testing initiative launches today (June 10) and will continue through August 14.

COVID-19 Test Sites Locator
Massachusetts has also published a COVID-19 test site locator where Massachusetts residences can enter their location and see what COVID-19 testing sites are near them, the types of testing they do (drive-through, appointments required, referral not required, etc.) and whether the location accepts MassHealth, or offers free testing for the uninsured.
