*COVID-19 Testing Tent
BIDHC-Chelsea is now offering COVID-19 testing at no cost to you, as part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts "Stop the Spread" program.
If you are a resident of ANY Massachusetts community, even if you have no COVID symptoms, please get tested to help stop the spread.
Symptoms may include:
- Shortness of breath
- Body aches
- If you have a physician order, you may schedule an appointment. Call the Chelsea COVID-19 line at 617-975-6262 to schedule in advance.
- If you do not have a physician order, you may walk in for a test. Due to high volume, we may, at times, be unable to accept additional walk-ins during the last hour of testing. Please come as early as possible.
- If you are a medical provider, and wish to fax an order for testing, please fax the order to 617-975-6010.
- You must have a BIDMC medical record number to be tested. It is different than the Stop the Spread registration. To obtain a BIDMC medical record number please call 833-447-0526.
- Please come as early as possible and bring a completed registration form (English or Spanish) with you.

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.
