Appointments for free COVID-19 testing can be made at beacontesting.com. Airport officials are asking people to enter the site through the airport side entrance on Downey Street.

Note: March 31 is the last day of walk-in testing offered by Seven Hills Behavioral Health at the Old Fire Station 11 in the South End at 745 Brock Ave.

Seven Hills testing at PAACA on Coggeshall St. ended March 30.

For rapid tests, the federal government offers free home test kits online, at COVIDtests.gov. Every household in the United States can order four free COVID-⁠19 home tests. If you test positive with a rapid test, self-isolate for at least five days and notify close contacts. State guidelines on isolation and quarantine can be found here.

If you test negative, it is advisable to retest a day or so later, especially if you have symptoms or known exposure to the virus.

Testing sites in New Bedford and surrounding towns can be found on the state’s Stop the Spread website, www.mass.gov/info-details/find-a-covid-19-test.
