Haverhill is leaving in place a free drive-up COVID-19 testing site in downtown Haverhill, while continuing plans to add a walk-up site Wednesday in the Mount Washington neighborhood.

The city originally said the downtown site, at the Locke Street parking lot across from St. James Church, would close today. In a statement, Mayor James J. Fiorentini said new plans call for the testing location to remain open through Wednesday Oct. 14, from 1-6 p.m. No identification, insurance or an appointment needed.

Starting Wednesday, Oct. 7, walk-up testing begins in the Mount Washington neighborhood at 358 Washington St., in front of Somebody Cares New England Food Pantry and across from Fantini Bakery.

Test sites were created at the request of the mayor when the city moved into the state’s high-risk red zone with outbreaks stemming from a church and a nursing home.
