COVID-19 Testing

Getting Tested

Massachusetts offers many testing options. If you live somewhere else, check your state website for resources. You can also use a home testing kit (often called antigen tests). The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has more information about home testing here.

Routine COVID-19 testing for people without COVID-19 symptoms is not available in our Emergency Departments, Urgent Care locations or Primary Care offices.

If you've already tested positive for COVID-19, you can learn more about current isolation guidelines on the CDC website.
