Gov. Baker Promotes New COVID-19 Testing Site At Suffolk Downs

REVERE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Gov. Charlie Baker is promoting a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at Suffolk Downs in Revere. 

The former horse racetrack is open seven days a week and requires an online registration. 

With an uptick in coronavirus cases, the state now considers Revere at high risk for COVD-19 transmission. Revere is one of 60 communities that are seeing escalating infection rates. 

Gov. Charlie Baker called the testing site a "terrific asset to help us help people get tested.” 

Baker said the positive rate is being driven up by large gatherings and people not wearing masks – especially younger people between ages 19 and 39.
