BOSTON (WHDH) - The public can get tested for the coronavirus for free on Wednesday and Thursday at more than 50 pop-up sites across the Bay State.

The testing sites are open to everyone and symptoms are not required to get tested.

Earlier this week, Gov. Charlie Baker urged protesters who have gathered in large groups for recent events and rallies to get tested.

“We are urging anyone who has attended a large gathering over the last two weeks to get tested for COVID-19 at one of these sites,” Baker said. “Any time large groups of people come together, there is a risk for transmission.”

Test results will be provided to each participant confidentially but they are encouraged to share those results with their doctors.

Some sites require an appointment.
