Free COVID-19 Testing at HCC Extended Until March 31

HOLYOKE — Free “Stop the Spread” COVID-19 testing at Holyoke Community College (HCC) has been extended until March 31, according to the Holyoke Board of Health.

Drive-through testing at HCC is conducted six days a week in parking lot H near the western entrance to the Donahue Building on the college’s main campus, 303 Homestead Ave. HCC has been serving as a “Stop the Spread” drive-thru testing site since Aug. 26 to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Drivers are asked to enter the campus from Homestead Avenue, turn left onto the Campus Road, and proceed to parking lot H. There will be signs and parking attendants on site to manage the flow of traffic.

The HCC testing site is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 7 to 11 a.m.; and Tuesday and Thursday from 2 to 7 p.m. Testing is free to all Massachusetts residents, and conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no appointments, and no referral is necessary. Turnaround time for results is typically four days or fewer.
