Mayor Carlo DeMaria along with State Senator Sal DiDomenico are pleased to announce that all residents of 66 Main Street, the Everett Villa Co-Op Apartments were given the opportunity to be tested for COVID19 on Thursday, May 7.
In partnership with Cambridge Health Alliance and Cataldo Ambulance the residents were able to access free testing without leaving the comfort of their homes.
“This is just one of the ways we can mitigate the impact of coronavirus throughout the City. Increasing our testing capacity will help prevent further spread of the virus. Partnerships like these will continue to strengthen our city’s fight against the coronavirus. I am thankful that Senator DiDomenico’s partnership in making this happen,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria.
The apartment buildings at 66 Main Street were selected by City officials because it houses some of the most vulnerable residents in the City of Everett.
“One of my main priorities since the COVID-19 emergency began has been bringing testing sites to my district,” said Senator Sal DiDomenico. “Public health officials have made it entirely clear that one of the most effective ways to fight this virus in our communities is to test residents, and I am pleased that the DeMaria Administration and my office have been able to partner with Cambridge Health Alliance and Cataldo Ambulance to bring the first COVID-19 testing site to Everett. I want to thank Mayor DeMaria for always making the health and well-being of our residents a priority.”
Residents who received testing did not have to show symptoms. Testing results will be delivered to residents within 2-5 days.
