IMPORTANT TESTING INFORMATION:
This is a Broad Institute COVID-19 (RT)-PCR Diagnostic Assay Test which is a CLIA approved lab test.

Since requirements are changing daily, it is the patient’s responsibility to check on these requirements beforehand. LCG Boston is NOT responsible if the Broad Institute is not on the list of accepted providers for your travel destination.

PLEASE REFER TO THE MAP BELOW FOR REFERENCE!
We use PCR tests, which are self-administered anterior/non-invasive swabs under the guidance and supervision of a Registered Nurse.
You will receive your results in 24-48 hours by email. We also call as many patients as we can whether positive or negative.
If you have not received your results by email within 24-48 hours of your test…
If you are unable to log into CareEvolve with the registration code provided by email, please give us a call to look into your account, (857) 277-1690.
The Boston Housing Authority is not ticketing at this time. Parking in the ‘Resident Only’ area for a brief period is permitted.
Registration is not required. We are a first-come-first-served walk thru site!
If you have had close contact or known exposure in recent days, you should continue to quarantine until day 10 post-exposure as you may be in the incubation phase still. So, if you were exposed 3 days ago, and received a negative test 2 days ago, you may have received a false negative. Please remain quarantined and get another test done 10 days from the date you were exposed.
Even if you were tested at the same time, most swabs do not stay together during the testing process. Because of this, you may receive your results at different times. Because we strive to contact you as soon as we can, one person may receive their results bright and early while another receives them later in the afternoon. This is nothing to worry about!
When a test is inconclusive (neither positive nor negative), it usually means that not enough residue was collected at the time of your test. Without a good swab, our testing system is unable to determine whether you are infected. If this happens, we recommend being tested again at your earliest convenience.
Please visit the CDC for more information and educational material on COVID-19, testing and the latest updates on the virus.
