HOLYOKE, MA — DECEMBER 7, 2021 — COVID-19 testing and public health service startup Curative today announced the deployment of a new drive-thru site with up to 300 tests per day available. The site is located near the Planet Fitness parking lot at Holyoke Mall.
“Curative is proud to be partnering with Holyoke Mall and be a crucial resource for the community during this pandemic,” said Fred Turner, CEO and co-founder of Curative. “Curative’s goal is to make testing more accessible with our easy drive-thru testing site. We offer a simple testing option with results delivered directly 1-2 days upon receipt at our labs and at no out-of-pocket cost to patients.”
Curative offers shallow nasal PCR testing for COVID-19. Once the patient completes the test, the patient seals their test within a secure container and returns it to be processed in the lab. The sample collection process can be viewed here.
