FRAMINGHAM – The free COVID-19 drive-through testing at Walsh Middle School, located at 301 Brook Street is canceled Friday, October 9, due to downed trees and power lines on the driveway, the City of Framingham announced tonight after 7.

A storm swept through the City early in the evening, Wednesday, October 7, which brought down trees and power lines.

Despite working diligently through the night Wednesday and Thursday, Eversource and the City have not yet been able to clear the driveway at Walsh, said the City in a press release.

About 800 of the 30,000 customers in the City are still without power more than 24 hours after the storm.

Free, walk-up COVID-19 testing will still be available Friday at the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) located at 7 Bishop Street, Framingham, from 3-6 p.m.

The walk-up testing at SMOC is open to everyone, symptomatic and asymptomatic. There is no appointment required. There is limited parking available on-site for the walk-up testing, and no health insurance is required. People will receive results in approximately 72 hours from Fallon Ambulance, who is conducting the tests.
