With the Commonwealth’s Stop the Spread sites closing, Revere Dept. of Public Health partners with Curative Health to continue COVID testing at Revere locations

  The Revere Department of Public Health announced on Tuesday that beginning Friday, April 1, the Revere High School (RHS) COVID-19 testing site will transition from a state-sponsored drive-up testing site to a walk-up, clinic-style model operated by Curative Health.

  While the Commonwealth phases out COVID-19 testing sites across the state Revere will maintain testing facilities through a new partnership with Curative Health. The RHS testing site will continue to operate the same hours weekdays – Monday through Friday from 4:00-8:00 p.m. – but Saturday mornings hours have changed to 8:30-12:30 p.m. However, there is no longer a drive-thru option to test. The change will be in effect starting Friday, April 1, 2022. Instead of two large trailers, there will be a colorful kiosk that residents will be able to walk up to and get a COVID-19 PCR test. Residents will be asked for insurance information, but there will be no out-of-pocket cost to them.

  “Our residents relied on the Revere High School testing site throughout the entirety of the pandemic, and we knew we weren’t quite ready to get rid of the site altogether,” said Revere Department of Public Health Director Lauren Buck. “Curative Health ensures we can continue to test at this location, despite what hardships the pandemic throws our way this year.”

  The Revere Department of Public Health continues to host vaccination clinics in Revere and urges anyone who has not been vaccinated or boosted against COVID-19 to do so. Weekly clinics at 123 Shirley Ave continue from 3-6:30 p.m. every Tuesday. To find the most up-to-date information about vaccination clinics, please visit www.revere.org.
