Testing Sites

One of the most important ways of preventing the virus is to increase testing. Testing options remain limited, but the City is working hard to ensure access to additional testing resources are made available to our residents wherever possible.

We have three nearby walk-in options available for all residents. These locations require No Insurance, No PCP, No Questions Asked.

(1) East Boston Health Center. 
Call 617-569-5800 and follow prompts to register for testing. Don’t schedule an appointment time, just show up. Confirm verbally on the phone that an order has been placed for your test. Takes about 10 min to sign up, and they text you a link to an app where you can view your results. The walk thru at 79 Paris Street is from 8am-12pm (there is a parking lot), and the drive thru at Suffolk Downs (525 William F McClellan Highway) is from 1-5pm. Testing is 7 days per week. It should take 1-2 days to receive results.
(2) Beth Israel Deaconess at 1000 Broadway in Chelsea has both a walk-in tent and an appointment tent.
(3) MGH Chelsea Healthcare at 100 Everett Ave in Chelsea also has walk-in testing available.

State Testing Locator

City Officials are also working with the state, the National Guard, and a number of local medical providers on providing additional testing at area senior living facilities wherever possible.
