Testing for COVID-19 is available for everyone in the Greater Lynn Community at Lynn Community Health Center. You may be tested regardless of your symptoms or exposure to COVID-19. You do not need to be a patient at LCHC or have health insurance.

LCHC uses the PCR anterior nasal swab for testing. We do not offer rapid testing at the health center.

**We are doing our best to provide as much walk-in access as possible in response to expressed community need, but due to high volume, we are unable to guarantee walk-in availability. Please be patient with our staff. 
The first 30 - 60 minutes of any clinic time will likely have no ability to accept walk-in’s. Thank you for your patience!
