Cambridge says that any residents, regardless of whether they have current symptoms, will be able to get tested for Covid-19 at the Cambridge Health Alliance East Cambridge Care Center, 163 Gore St., starting on Friday.
Although testing is open to all residents - and CHA patients - an appointment is required, by calling 617-665-2928, starting Thursday.
Testing is free:
Cambridge residents 8 years of age and older will be welcome, regardless of insurance or immigration status.
The testing center will be available as a drive-thru for residents in cars as well as for residents to walk in or bicycle to, with hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. People who walk in or bicycle will have to wear a face covering.
If residents have symptoms, they should first call their primary care provider, who can assess their needs and assist with any follow-up.
