City of Lowell to Distribute Free At-Home COVID Tests at Three Locations on Saturday


LOWELL – The City of Lowell will distribute free, at-home COVID-19 test kits to Lowell residents at three locations on Saturday, December 18 from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Tests will be available at the following locations:


Robinson Middle School, 110 June Street

Lowell Department of Public Works, 1365 Middlesex Street

Lowell Senior Center, 276 Broadway Street


Supplies will be limited at each site. All Lowell residents are eligible to receive two test kits, which contain two tests each. Proof of Lowell residency in the form of a government issued ID or a current utility bill displaying a name and address will be required to obtain an allotment of tests. 


Residents who intend to drive to a pick-up location are urged to use the Robinson Middle School or DPW site given parking constraints at the Senior Center. 


The tests are among the 2.1 million secured by the Baker-Polito Administration from iHealth Labs that the Commonwealth began distributing to communities this week. The City of Lowell has obtained a supply of 76,410 tests.


Last week, the CDC issued guidance on when to use self-tests like those being distributed on Saturday’s event, including information on when to consider self-testing, how to complete the tests, and how to react to a positive or negative result.


The City intends to provide additional opportunities for residents to obtain free tests in the coming weeks.  

Instructions for using at-home tests.
