    Lowell Community Health Center pair heads up COVID-19 test site

    “Before COVID-19 began to sweep through Massachusetts and the country, Samantha Jordan and Lindsey Roberts never had much of an opportunity to work together. As chief of dental services and laboratory supervisor, respectively, at Lowell Community Health Center, their paths weren’t often likely to cross. But since late April, the two havebeen working together three days a week, helping to collect specimens at the health center’s COVID-19 testing operation on Jackson Street.”
