“With the surge of the Omicron variant and the increased demand for testing, we worked to quickly make more appointments available to residents,” said Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale in a joint statement. “We want to thank CIC Health for their partnership in expanding their testing to seven days a week for those who live and work in Cambridge, and we’re extremely grateful for and proud of the efforts of the members of the Cambridge Pandemic Collaborative for their continued work at our walk-in testing sites.”
