WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Town of West Springfield will be offering free COVID-19 testing for residents only. 

The town is partnering with American Medical Response (AMR) to provide the testing prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

“There is an advisory for the governor not to gather for large gatherings and only hangout with the family they live with but we know for some folks that even when they are just with the family they live with they want that peace of mind,” said West Springfield Mayor William Reichelt.

The testing takes place on Thursday, November 19 from 3-7 p.m. at West Springfield High School.

Cars should enter through the Clark Field parking lot on Amostown Road. Proof of residency will be required. Cars must be in line by 6:30 p.m. in order to be tested.

You can find more information, including a map with the route, on the town’s website.
