BOSTON – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced today, December 13, that 102 communities, including the City of Framingham, have been selected to receive over 2 million at-home COVID-19 tests.

The over-the-counter rapid COVID tests are needed as the Commonwealth faces a surge of infections.

“With the holidays approaching, we encourage residents to utilize rapid tests as a convenient way to keep family members and friends safe at gatherings,” Gov. Baker said .

“While these tests are widely available at many pharmacies and retail locations across the Commonwealth, we are making it even easier for residents to get free rapid testing through these initiatives,” said the Governor.

The communities that were selected had the highest percentage of families living below the poverty line, according to the state’s official mass.gov website.

Each community will determine the best way to distribute the tests to residents within their city or town said the Baker-Polito administration.
