covid-19 testing

In an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Town of Lexington is partnering with the Town of Belmont to offer free COVID-19 PCR testing following the Thanksgiving holiday. There will be two upcoming testing events, and both are open to residents of Lexington and Belmont, regardless of the testing location.

Testing for the virus remains one of the most important tools we have to slow and stop the spread of COVID-19. Celebrate safely with your loved ones this holiday season and take advantage of this free testing service for residents!

PhysicianOne Urgent Care will be providing the testing. You will need to set up an account on their website to register for a COVID-19 test, and to view your test results.

You must be registered AND have an appointment to be tested. Proof of residency is required. Testing is available for anyone 1 year of age or older.
