Stop the Spread
Testing is key to controlling COVID-19, which is why Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker ordered free testing for his "Stop the Spread" initiative.
Stop the Spread makes testing available for people with or without symptoms, insured or uninsured, in 21 communities that are experiencing more COVID-19 cases than Massachusetts' average. These tests should lead to quicker, better treatment for those who need it.
Tests can be used to determine who has come in close contact with infected persons, so they can get tested, treated, and take proper precautions.
