We are now offering COVID-19 testing at several medical offices.
Testing is available by appointment to both individuals who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and to those who are asymptomatic but need to be tested for other reasons. For example, reasons asymptomatic individuals may need to be tested could include a recent high-risk exposure to the virus. Individuals may also need to be tested because of travel or for work or school.
COVID-19 testing is available by appointment to existing patients of all 12 Middlesex Health Primary Care offices; all three Middlesex Health Family Medicine offices; and the Middlesex Health Infectious Disease (MultiSpecialty Group) office in Middletown. Urgent Care offices in Middletown and Madison are also now offering COVID-19 testing by appointment. An order from a provider is needed.
It is important to note that most people who call Middlesex Health Primary Care, Middlesex Health Family Medicine and the Middlesex Health Infectious Disease (MultiSpecialty Group) office in Middletown with COVID-19 symptoms will be seen virtually as part of a telehealth visit. If a test is recommended, they will be referred to an Urgent Care office. Asymptomatic patients will be tested in the medical office.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell and diffuse muscle aches. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your medical provider’s office. They can help you determine your next steps, and if needed, give you an order for testing.
You can also visit 2-1-1 of Connecticut to find information about testing sites throughout the state.
