Revere High School Drive Up Testing Site Transitions to New Walk-Up Model Starting April 1st
March 29, 2022
REVERE, MA – Today the Revere Department of Public Health announced that beginning on Friday, April 1, the Revere High School Testing site will transition from a state sponsored drive up testing site to a walk-up clinic style model operated by Curative Health.
While the Commonwealth phases out COVID testing sites across the state; Revere will maintain testing facilities through a new partnership with Curative Health. The testing site at Revere High School will continue to operate the same hours during the week– Monday – Friday from 4:00-8:00 PM, but Saturday mornings hours have altered to 8:30-12:30 PM. However, there is no longer a drive-thru option to test. The change will be in effect starting Friday, April 1, 2022. Instead of two large trailers, there will be a colorful kiosk that residents will be able to walk up to and get a COVID-19 PCR test. Residents will also be asked for insurance information, but there will be no out-of-pocket cost to them.
“Our residents relied on the Revere High School testing site throughout the entirety of the pandemic, and we knew we weren’t quite ready to get rid of the site altogether,” said Lauren Buck, Director of Revere’s Department of Public Health. “Curative Health ensures we can continue to test at this location, despite what hardships the pandemic throws our way this year.”
The Revere Department of Public Health continues to host vaccination clinics in the City of Revere and urges anyone who has not been vaccinated or boosted against COVID-19 to do so. Weekly clinics at 123 Shirley Ave continue from 3-6:30 PM every Tuesday. To find the most up to date information about vaccination clinics, please visit www.revere.org.
