Berkshire Health Systems' three COVID-19 testing centers are now open as part of the state's Stop the Spread Program for free community testing.
iBerkshires.com reports access to COVID-19 testing, either through the Stop the Spread program or for symptomatic testing, is by appointment only. Individuals MUST call the BHS COVID-19 Hotline, 855-BMC-LINK, or 855-262-5465, which is available daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Gov. Charlie Baker announced on Monday the addition of three Berkshire County sites to the program.  The commonwealth will be supporting free COVID-19 testing in 25 communities — up from eight when the state announced its Stop the Spread testing initiative in July.
Stop the Spread is a cost-free surveillance testing for individuals who are asymptomatic and want to be tested for COVID-19.
