FRAMINGHAM – Project Beacon’s free drive-thru testing site in Framingham will close by August 15, as students will be headed back to campus for the 2021 fall semester.

The free testing is part of the Commonwealth’s Stop the Spread program.

Project Beacon uses “PCR” testing. This test tells you if you currently have COVID-19. PCR tests are conducted by nasal swab, oral swab, or saliva sample. Framingham’s site is using a nasal swab to conduct testing.  

Testing is located at 123 Maple Street at the Framingham State University commuter parking lot.
