PROVIDENCE, RI – Mayor Jorge O. Elorza and Curative, a COVID-19 testing and next-generation healthcare delivery company, today announced a joint partnership to provide convenient and accessible COVID-19 testing to the general public. Curative is now offering PCR tests for COVID-19 Monday through Friday at their new kiosk located in Kennedy Plaza.
“Curative is a trusted partner who has provided convenient and accessible COVID-19 testing to cities and towns nationwide,” said Mayor Jorge O. Elorza. “Their kiosk, which will be located in the heart of the city, will be a convenient option for members of our community to get tested as we head into the fall and winter seasons.”
Costs associated with PCR testing will be billed to an individual’s health insurance provider, while individuals without access to health insurance will be tested at no-cost. Test results will be delivered via text message or email once results are in. Appointments for the testing kiosk are preferred but walk-ins are welcome.
“Curative is proud to be partnering with City of Providence 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 testing kiosk. We offer a simple testing option with results delivered directly and at no out-of-pocket cost to patients.”
