The Tufts Community Testing Program ended on December 15th at the conclusion of the fall academic semester. More than 1,400 free COVID-19 tests were provided to Medford/Somerville campus neighbors during the duration of the program.  The Community Testing Program will not continue in the spring 2021 semester. We will use all of our testing capacity, staffing and resources to provide COVID-19 tests for the public schools in Medford and Somerville.  

In an effort to support its surrounding community, Tufts University is offering free asymptomatic testing for COVID-19  to its neighbors that live close to its Medford/Somerville campus (see list of eligible streets below). The testing program will held in Breed Memorial Hall (51 Winthrop St. Medford) on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3pm to 6pm. The program will run until December 16th. Tests are available by appointment ONLY. Each test takes roughly 10 minutes. Only those with an appointment will be allowed to enter the testing facility. No children will be allowed into the testing facility. Please read the requirements and FAQs before making an appointment.


  • Must be 18 years or older.
  • Must live on one of streets in Medford or Somerville that are listed below.
  • Must make an appointment at least one day in advance. If you arrive at the testing facility without an appointment, you will not be tested.
  • Must fill out consent form. You can view it (in English or Spanish), print it, and sign it at home or sign it at the testing facility. If you print it out and sign it at home please be sure to bring the form with you to the testing site.
  • Face covering required (must be covering mouth and nose).
  • Please bring photo ID and/or utility bill with your address.

Parking will only be available to individuals who have a handicapped parking permit. For those looking for parking, there is metered parking available on Boston Ave. When you arrive, you will be greeted by a staff member, who will check you in.  If you have symptoms of COVID-19, do not come to the testing facility, instead contact your primary healthcare provider.
