Hi, anyone on island now from the Boston area? If so, where did you get your covid test?
Just want to make sure I have all the correct info to send to EHAS. Thanks.

Southern MASS resident here....there are four Express Covid testing sites run by Project Beacon available by appointment . They are free for MA residents and supposedly return results in 24-48 hours.

We made an appointment at the New Bedford site but cancelled and went to the Convention Center in RI which was closer

Appointments fill up fast and you have to keep checking. Link below

Salem MA Old Town Hall. It's free, but the line was long, although it moved pretty well. It took me about 45 minutes. I got my results back in about 20 hours. There's also a drive-thru at Salem High School.

I know all the hassles seem insurmountable and nerve racking, but I was on the island for about 20 minutes before they all seemed like minor inconveniences. C'mon down! - the island needs your support, and everything is great once you get here.

Covid test Monday at 11:30 at Project Beacon site in New Bedford, MA. EHAS approval at 2:00 p.m. today......all set for Saturday departure. Process was not worth stressing over.

There are two testing sites at Logan
One in Term E. One in Term C
The company is called Xpress check
If I recall correctly hours are 8-4
The quick test is 200
The other test is 75
