Important Update: We are not testing for COVID-19. Make sure you call our clinic in advance to determine your best treatment option. We will evaluate you, test for influenza, and contact the Connecticut DPH if appropriate. Our provider team can collect samples and send to our third-party reference lab for testing if deemed necessary by our providers. You may also be tested for influenza at the same time. The current test results turnaround time is 7-10 days but may change in the upcoming days.
Please call in advance to alert the team!
The current CDC guidelines for testing can be found here, which are helpful for evaluating your risk of COVID-19.
However, patients that don’t meet the clinical guidelines as a likely match for COVID-19 can still be tested for seasonal illnesses. The common cold and flu have similar symptoms to COVID-19: Sneezing, coughing, and fever.
