LOWELL, MA – On Saturday, June 27, CVS will conclude COVID-19 testing operations at its rapid testing site in Lowell at the Showcase Cinema parking lot. Since April, the site has offered no-cost testing to Massachusetts residents using Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 technology to produce results in an average of fifteen minutes. Testing has gradually decreased at the site over the last several weeks based on reduced demand. During the surge of new COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts, the site conducted up to 1,000 tests per day.

The site’s closure is prompted by the expiration of CVS Health’s contract with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, which was relied upon in the site’s operation.
