    Things to do in Provincetown Off Season. What’s it really like in winter?

    You’re not a real ptownie until some asks you, “What’s Ptown like in winter?”. Now that the novelty of moving your home office to your happy place has worn off, here’s what really happens in Provincetown Off Season – a lot!

    FREE COVID TESTING

    Stop The Spread Provincetown

    Local Stop the Spread Site: Starting January 13, 2022 through March, there will be weekly COVID-19 PCR testing in the Town Hall Auditorium on Thursdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. You do not need an appointment for these tests; it will be walk-in, first come first serve. Enter the front entrance main lobby and take the stairs on the right up to the clinic. Be sure to maintain 6’ social distancing while in line and remember, Provincetown requires masks indoors. Out of town folks should plan to park in one of the municipal lots and walk to Town Hall as we do not have parking associated with the test site. Folks needing ADA access may use the rear entrance from Bradford Street and take the elevator up.
    Provincetown Town Hall, 260 Commercial Street
