Governor Charlie Baker along with his Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito launched a COVID-19 testing website called “Get Tested” as a convenient resource for Commonwealth residents to find testing information in a single place.
This will be a revamped site different from past online portals concerning the Coronavirus. You can find it at Mass.gov/GetTested.
Information such as who should be tested, what to do if you get a positive result and details on different test types will all be available on the site.
It will also connect with the test site locator where Massachusetts residents can find a test site conveniently located near them. You can filter through over 250 sites by features like operating hours, testing for children and drive through options.
The Baker Administration also launched a new awareness campaign last week for testing in conjunction with the new website. It will include electronic MassDOT and MBTA billboards throughout the Commonwealth to go along with social media outreach.
On Wednesday and Thursday last week, over 50 new testing sites were erected providing free testing to those who recently attended large gatherings such as the protests taking place across the nation.
Nearly one million tests have been conducted in the state thus far.
