COVID-19 Message from Mayor McGee - August 13, 2020
Governor Baker has released a new map of the Commonwealth breaking down each Massachusetts City or Town as a higher risk, moderate risk or lower risk community for the spread of COVID-19. In light of the recent uptick in positive COVID-19 cases in Lynn, the city is currently one of 4 communities across the state that has been designated as a higher risk community. As a result, Lynn will be receiving additional state resources to curb the spread of COVID-19. But this means we need every member of our community in Lynn to step up and do their part too to flatten the curve and stop the spread in our City again.

Our Public Health Department and Mass Gatherings Task Force will continue to work with the Administration and with our local health care providers to address the key factors of testing, contact tracing, and enforcement of health protocols. If you receive a call that you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, it is important to cooperate and be forthcoming about your whereabouts with the contact tracers, in order to stop the spread. You are not getting anyone in trouble, in fact, you are keeping others safe. It is vital that you stay home if you are sick and if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 please go and get tested.

Testing is available for Massachusetts residents regardless of their insurance, immigration status or if they have any symptoms at the Lynn Community Health Center in the Element Care parking lot at 9 Buffum Street 7 days a week. Please call the Lynn Community Health Center at (781) 581-3900 to make an appointment. Limited walk-ins are also welcome.

Lynn Community Health Center Testing Hours:
Saturday and Sunday: 1 PM until 4 PM
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday:  8:30 AM until 4:30 PM (Closed 12 PM - 1 PM)
Thursday: 10 AM until 4:30 PM and 5 PM until 7 PM (Closed 12 PM - 1 PM)

The City of Lynn was selected to be a part of the state’s “Stop the Spread” Mobile Testing Initiative which will continue through October 31st Visit our testing webpage for information on locations and dates of this COVID-19 mobile testing.

Our community has worked too hard to get here and we need to continue to be diligent and focus on continuing to follow and comply with the state guidelines pertaining to social distancing, personal hygiene, wearing face coverings at all times when interacting with others, and especially not gathering with people beyond those you live with. Our ability to follow these guidelines, will determine how we limit the spread in our community and ensure we keep our community safe.
