Drive-thru coronavirus testing locations in southern CT
As the coronavirus continues to spread through Connecticut, the state is rolling out collection sites for virus testing.
All collections are made by appointment-only, and patients need a physician order to book an appointment. Most collections are done via drive-thru, though some require people to get out of their cars.
When patients arrive for drive-thru testing, they can remain in their vehicles while staff swab their mouth and nose. Specimens are sent to a lab for processing and can be ready anywhere from the same day to five days later.
Here are where patients can go to tested, once approved by a physician and given an appointment:
