The Baker-Polito Administration has expanded free COVID-19 testing to 8 more sites, including 2 in Western MA. Some say the region needs more testing access.
"Western Mass. is a large area, and as we know, many people in our region rely on public transportation, so we have to be really thoughtful about spreading out testing sites around our large geographic area," said Jessica Collins, executive director of the Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts. "For someone from Pittsfield to have to go to Agawam or Springfield, that is not an easy thing to do."
