City Of Boston Urges Street Demonstrators To Get A Covid-19 Test

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Whether it was to protest or celebrate the results of the election, many turned out in Boston to demonstrate over the weekend. And now, city officials are concerned about the potential spread of the coronavirus.

From the Back Bay to Nubian Square, people from all around were hugging, cheering, singing and even yelling after the election results came in on Saturday, with the Associated Press projecting former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris as the 46th Presidential administration of the United States.

The City of Boston is now encouraging everyone who went out to to demonstrate on the streets to get tested for Covid-19.

"If you were around any large crowds this weekend — or just want to get tested — we have a map and list of #COVID19 testing locations, as well as a list of mobile pop-up testing sites across the City of Boston," the city wrote in a tweet.

Officials included a link where residents can access their closest testing location in the city or other areas of the Commonwealth, including full centers and pop-up mobile sites.

The city says it is working with health centers in the community to increase access to testing, as cases of the virus continue to surge in the city and across the state.

Last Wednesday Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced two mobile testing teams that are available to anyone free of charge, even if you aren't experiencing any symptoms of the virus.
