The City of Cambridge today announced the March schedule for its 7 days per week testing program, including walk-in and appointment-based testing options.


Appointment-only testing, provided through a partnership with CIC Health, will be available 7 days per week to people who live or work in Cambridge. Beginning Saturday, March 5, 2022, Testing at CIC Health’s 295 Third Street location is available during the following hours:

Appointments can be booked online at www.cic-health.com/cambridge or assistance is available from CIC’s Customer Service Team at support@cic-health.com or by calling 877-280-2937.

  • Monday, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at CambridgeSide in the Parking Garage on Level G3. This will remain walk up only not drive through.
