Testing COVID-19 in MA

Massachusetts COVID-19 Testing Sites

Massachusetts physicians previously had difficulty contacting COVID-19 test sites that were listed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH). These physicians requested a map of the COVID-19 testing sites so that they could assist patients in finding convenient locations to seek testing. Our team contacted all sites directly to obtain information regarding insurance accepted and need for physician referral. We then shared this information with the DPH, which edited its list.

The updated Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency map of COVID-19 test sites can be found here. Our research and map of the locations can be found here.

Huge thanks to: Harvard medical student, Sanjana Srinivasan; Harvard dental students, Alex Cruz and Alisha Desai, for their work pulling together this data; and to UC-Berkeley student, Astri Horsburgh, for creating the map of testing sites.
