Hartford HealthCare announces COVID-19 testing site in Mystic
Mystic — Hartford HealthCare has announced that it is opening three new COVID-19 community testing locations, including one at the Perkins Farm development where its Mystic Health Center is located.
The testing sites are expected to be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this week, pending state Department of Public Health approval. Those seeking tests at the Perkins Farm site will use the main entrance and loop around the perimeter of the parking lot. The testing site will be near the far corner of the building.
The testing process will take less than three minutes. To get tested, visitors need a referral from their Hartford HealthCare Medical Group provider. Those who don’t have a provider may call the HHC Clinical Command Center at (860) 972-8100.
Hartford HealthCare also announced new testing sites in Newington and Westport, as well as a mobile testing unit. It said its goal is to help increase daily testing, which it said is “a key initiative to reach vulnerable populations, determine the extent of infection and transition into more 'normal' operations.”
