Senator Lesser Supports New Hartford Healthcare Drive-Up Testing Site in Newington

State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) today gave his support to a new Hartford HealthCare drive-up COVID-19 testing site at its Newington campus. This new testing site further expands testing availability in Connecticut, helping provide the public with more direct information and resources in the battle against the virus.

“Access to testing for people suffering symptoms or who believe they’ve been exposed to COVID-19 is vital, which is why I’m happy Hartford HealthCare is expanding texting access in Newington,” said Sen. Lesser. “The more people we can test, the better we can identify COVID, and the better we can identify COVID, the better we can limit and control its spread.”

The Newington site is located at the Hartford HealthCare System Support Office at 181 Patricia M. Genova Drive in Newington, next to the Curtis Building. It is available daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Referrals are required. Patients may contact their own healthcare providers or the Hartford HealthCare clinical command center at 833-621-0600 to be screened for a referral.
