Return to Work COVID-19 Testing Policy
We are happy to evaluate you based on Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to determine if you meet the criteria to safely return to work. This does not involve a COVID-19 test. If you are cleared to return to work, our providers will give you a letter for your employer.
If your employer requires a COVID-19 test for you to return to work, you need to call your doctor and ask them to put an order in for you to get tested.
Protests and COVID-19 Testing
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Massachusetts Governor Baker recommended that individuals who participated in recent protests get tested for COVID-19. We will test anyone who participated in one of the recent protests. Our providers recommend waiting 48 hours after attending a protest to get tested for COVID-19.
