COVID-19 Testing, Contact Tracing, Healthcare and Social Services at Whittier Street Health Center

On April 13th, 2020, Whittier Street Health Center launched a walk-up/drive thru COVID-19 Testing Site outside our main clinic on 1290 Tremont Street, Roxbury. To learn more about our COVID-19 Testing at 1290 Tremont Street, please click on the quick link for more information.

Starting on June 1st, 2020, Whittier Street Health Center expanded its COVID-19 Testing with the addition of its Mobile Health Vans, providing testing at various locations including public housing, faith institutions, community centers and other locations designated by the Boston Public Health Commission as hotspots please click on the link for the weekly schedule.

In conjunction with our new testing initiative, we are working with the MA Community Tracing Collaborative to help accelerate efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 by scaling up the state’s capacity for contact tracing. Contact tracing, which entails identifying and contacting individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 so they can isolate/self-quarantine to prevent further spread, is a time-tested public health intervention that has proven to be an essential tool in bringing infectious disease outbreaks under control.

This new collaboration is a partnership between the MA COVID-19 Command Center, the Department of Public Health, the Commonwealth Insurance Connector Authority, Partners in Health, and community health centers. Whittier’s Infectious Diseases and Special Populations and Community Relations teams will be assisting with this initiative, adapting their experience and expertise with contact tracing in the area of HIV, STI, and Hepatitis C transmission. The team is multi-cultural, multi-lingual and reflects the population served.

Both testing and contact tracing are vital parts of the federal, state and city recovery plans and strategies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Massachusetts. Your health and safety is our top priority.

We are providing in-person medical, behavioral health, dental, eye care and social services, ensuring compliance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We also provide telehealth medical, behavioral and group visits.

We have launched our Flu Vaccine Clinic and encourage all to get their flu vaccine. Please click on the link for the Flu Vaccine Clinic schedule .
