New Bedford COVID-19 Testing Sites Resume Regular Schedules After Winter Storms, Holiday

image_pdfimage_print

COVID-19 testing clinics at New Bedford Regional Airport, former Fire Station 11 in the South End and PAACA on Coggeshall Street will resume their regular schedules this week, after recent shifts in dates and hours due to winter weather and the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.

Project Beacon’s appointment-based COVID-19 testing at New Bedford Regional Airport—part of the state’s Stop the Spread program—will continue its Wednesday hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., recently added to allow for more appointments.

Appointments for free COVID-19 tests can be made at beacontesting.com. Airport officials ask that people reach the site via the airport’s side entrance on Downey Street.

Contact Project Beacon by email at help@beacontesting.com; or by calling 617-741-7310.

The testing clinic provided by Seven Hills Behavioral Health at former Fire Station 11 in the South End is walk-up, with no appointment necessary.

For rapid tests, the federal government is offering free at-home test kits online, at COVIDtests.gov. Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order four free at-home COVID-⁠19 tests. If you test positive with a rapid test, isolate for at least five days and notify close contacts. State guidance on isolation and quarantining can be found here.
If you test negative, re-testing a day or more later is advised, particularly if you have symptoms or a known exposure to the virus.

Testing sites in New Bedford and surrounding towns can be found on the state’s Stop the Spread website, www.mass.gov/info-details/find-a-covid-19-test.
