As the pandemic continues, it has become increasingly challenging for those who are asymptomatic to get tested for COVID-19. PersonalMDs can place an order on your behalf at the Mass General Brigham hospitals (formerly known as Partners Healthcare), but if you are asymptomatic, you may encounter a wait of at least several days for an appointment. Many of the local urgent care centers offer testing as well. Take a look at this interactive map detailing all the available COVID-19 testing sites in Massachusetts:
The Mass General Brigham urgent care clinics (Natick, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, Westwood, Boston Common, Cambridge) allow you to book an appointment online, and the turnaround time for test results is approximately 1-2 days. Please see the following link:
Keep in mind testing occasionally can produce false negative results, and it may take up to 14 days after exposure for one to develop COVID-19 symptoms. Those who are asymptomatic may be responsible for the cost of the COVID-19 test which is approximately $165.
