Covid-19 Testing: March 27, 2020
There is a lot of confusion right now about testing for Covid-19. If you have ANY concerns regarding possible symptoms or exposure, please call us at 860-661-4662 and we can do a same-day telemedicine visit to evaluate your situation and order testing at the location most convenient for you.
Current guidelines recommend that testing be done ONLY if the following symptoms are present:
- Fever greater than or equal to 100.0°F
- Shortness of breath
Also please be aware that testing requires a doctor’s order prior to arrival at the test site.
If you have been exposed or think you might have been exposed, current guidelines recommend self-quarantine for 14 days.
The following hospitals also have hotlines to call for after-hours information:
