Take the Testing Pledge
Mayor Marty Walsh is asking everyone to commit to getting tested for #COVID19. Getting tested is how you keep yourself and your family safe. It’s also how we track the presence of the virus in our community. We need the most accurate picture we can get, so we can focus our response in the most effective way. The Boston Testing Pledge was launched last week. It’s a commitment that employers and individuals can make, to get tested and support testing access. Here’s a map of testing sites in the city.
Just a reminder that the new state Covid-19 safety guidelines will kick in on Friday including bars/restaurants and liquor stores closing at 9:30. Get the details here.
