CHA Moves COVID-19 Testing Site to Assembly Square

07/17/2020

SOMERVILLE, Mass. – Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), an academic community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston's metro-north region, is transitioning its COVID-19 testing site from the CHA Somerville Campus to 77 Middlesex Avenue (Assembly Square). Individuals MUST CALL to set up an appointment using the hotline number 617-665-2928. Tests are provided at no charge to the patient. CHA does bill your insurance for the test and you may get a statement showing this. But there should be no out-of-pocket costs for you.

Testing is open to all CHA patients, people who live in CHA’s service area and other members of the community. CHA patients with symptoms or contact with confirmed COVID-19 cases should call their primary care provider to schedule a test referral.

The service accommodates drive-thru and people on foot/bike. All patients will also receive guidance on how to protect themselves and family members while test results are pending. This is available in multiple languages. The testing tent is open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. People are asked to call 617-665-2928 to get an appointment. The Call Center is open Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Results will be available in five days after people are tested. Each community’s Department of Public Health will contact people with the results who are not CHA patients. CHA is monitoring the situation and will make changes as circumstances evolve. Visit www.challiance.org to learn more and get updated information.
