Here are resources for COVID-19 Testing in MA.

Water House is encouraging testing after August 3rd 2020. Here is a list and more sources below.

A note about COVID-19 testing from a local trusted doctor: "Asymptomatic testing may not be covered by insurance. In addition, the test itself has a high chance of being inaccurate the first few days after exposure with a gradual increase in accuracy up until Day 7 when it will hit a whopping 80% accurate rate -- hence 20% false negatives. (This is the current data and overall rates, subject to change)."
