Free testing for those who have been in large gatherings starts today (June 17)

Over 50 free COVID-19 testing sites will open throughout the commonwealth on Wednesday for people who have recently participated in large gatherings. 

These pop-up sites, which will stay open through the end of Thursday, will offer testing for people with or without coronavirus symptoms, according to a release from the Baker-Polito Administration. 

“Thousands of people have been congregating in large groups over the past several weeks to exercise their First Amendment rights in the wake of the George Floyd murder. These gatherings are coinciding with reopening, meaning more and more people are moving around with each other,” Gov. Charlie Baker said during his Monday briefing. “And anytime large groups of people come together, there’s a risk for transmission. We certainly support people’s rights to express their views peacefully, but we need to keep up our fight to slow the spread of COVID-19 here in Massachusetts.”

While most testing sites will accept walk-in patients, officials recommend calling ahead or reserving online for the few locations that are appointment-only, including CVS locations.

Baker said individuals will confidentially receive their tests results and are encouraged to share those results with their doctors.

Soldiers’ homes resume visits after months as coronavirus hotspots (June 15)

Massachusetts’ two state-run soldiers’ homes are resuming visits this week after being hotspots for the new coronavirus.

The Chelsea Soldiers’ Home will begin allowing visits outdoors starting Monday while the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home will begin allowing them Tuesday.

The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services says all veteran residents and staff have been retested in preparation for resuming limited visitation.

Only eight residents were found positive for COVID-19 at the Holyoke home and six at the Chelsea home as of Friday, the office said.

State officials say recreational activities, including supervised time outdoors, have also resumed for veterans at the Holyoke home, which was the site of one of the deadliest outbreaks of the virus in a nursing home in the nation. Veterans are also being trained to use iPad, which are being used for regular family communication through video chat, they said.

As of Friday, 76 veterans at the Holyoke home and 31 veterans living at the Chelsea home had died from the virus during the pandemic.
