NEW BEDFORD — Project Beacon’s appointment-based COVID-19 testing at New Bedford Regional Airport will be open during Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 17, but the walk-up clinic provided by Seven Hills Behavioral Health at former Fire Station 11 in the South End will be closed for the holiday.

COVID-19 testing at the airport — part of the state’s Stop the Spread program — will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday. Project Beacon is shifting its hours, though, on Sunday, Jan. 16, when it will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Project Beacon is notifying people with Sunday appointments about the change. Anyone with questions can contact Project Beacon by email at help@beacontesting.com; or by calling 617-741-7310.
