In response to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts, we are expanding our COVID testing hours. Our new testing hours are M-F, 8:00 AM-11:50 AM.
If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, we strongly recommend that you get tested, even if you are vaccinated. We also encourage anyone who has traveled to Provincetown during July to get tested, as there has been a significant infection cluster traced there in recent weeks.
We are currently conducting COVID-19 testing on Fenway Health patients regardless of whether or not you have symptoms. There is no charge to you, but we will collect insurance information for everyone who is insured at the time of registration.
Fenway Health is now offering indoor COVID-19 testing in the new testing pods located on the first floor of our 1340 Boylston Street location.
Those patients who are not able to walk up the steps, including but not limited, to patients with wheelchairs, walkers, or strollers, should enter through the front entrance of 1340 Boylston Street.
Directions to the Rear Door of 1340 Boylston Street
Patients will enter through the rear door at 1340 Boylston Street which can be accessed via Private Alley 936 (this street is unmarked) which is best accessed by walking down Boylston Street towards Kilmarnock Street and taking your first left on Kilmarnock (on the corner where Tatte is located) if you’re coming from Fenway Health’s Boylston Street entrance. Then take your first left into Private Alley 936 (just after The Harlo Parking garage entrance). Walk along the alley towards the large blue sign outside the rear door of Fenway Health. Look for the big blue sign by the entrance to the testing clinic. Click here for printable directions and map (PDF).
Arriving by Car?
We have a limited number of parking spots available in the parking lot behind the McKinley School. The entrance to the parking lot is located at 36 Kilmarnock Street. Drive towards the end of the parking lot by the basketball courts and look for the signs that indicate parking for COVID testing. Parking is limited to 15 minutes. Once you’ve parked, look for the big blue sign outside of our rear entrance to the Health Center.
When you arrive for your appointment, please call 617.480.0498 to check in.
COVID-19 Testing and Inclement Weather
Our COVID-19 testing and appointment schedule may be impacted by inclement weather. If you are scheduled for a test and we need to reschedule due to weather, we will notify you via text message or phone call. Weather-related changes to our schedule will also be posted on this page.
Once someone is referred for testing, they will be contacted within 1 day to schedule an appointment date/time with directions to the testing site
If you are experiencing symptoms, please do not take public transportation or a ride share to your testing appointment.
A nasal swab test looks for virus particles in an active COVID-19 infection whereas an antibody test looks for antibodies made by your body in response to a COVID-19 exposure or infection.
