Residents in line for testing


The last day of PCR testing at CIC Health's 295 Third Street location was on December 28, 2022. The site has closed.

To find PCR testing locations, including sites that offer free testing, residents can visit the state's Find a COVID-19 Test webpage and search by zip code.

Residents are also reminded that rapid antigen home tests are available for free at pharmacies for individuals covered by insurance. In addition, the City of Cambridge is expecting a large supply of rapid tests from the state in the new year, which will be made available to residents at no cost. More information on that will be added once it is available.

At-home tests have an expiration date, located on the outside package. However, many expiration dates have been extended through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To check for a new extended date, you can search the FDA’s List of Authorized At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests. If you find your test is still expired even with the extended date, do not use it. It could give an inaccurate or false test result.
