For the forseeable future, there will be COVID-19 testing at First Parish on the Bedford Town Common (75 The Great Road) every Tuesday. ALL are welcome regardless of town of residence, affiliation, symptomology, or ability to pay. Register on-line and you’ll be given a time-slot and number:
Nearly 500 people have been tested, of whom only 3 were positive…AND asymptomatic – exactly the reason for universal testing! This testing is a collaboration between a local lab, the Bedford Research Foundation and First Parish in accordance with Governor Baker’s Task Force encouragement of universal testing.
Though the subsidized cost of the test is $85 and a form is included with the results that may be submitted to insurance, First Parish also offers – thanks to generous donors – to subsidize anyone for whom cost is a barrier. Also testing is free for ALL Bedford Town employees.
And please pass this information on to anyone else who might be interested! If questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
