News from Representative Larson

Dear Friends,

COVID-19 cases are rising across Connecticut, but there are many steps we can take to protect our neighbors and families. Aside from wearing a mask and social distancing, testing remains one of our strongest tools for mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Thanks to a federal law enacted in March, testing for COVID-19 is free.

If you aren’t sure if you or a family member should get tested, you can find information here. For a list of local testing sites and their policies, click here.

Here are just some of the COVID-19 testing options available in Connecticut:

  • The Community Health Center is offering free walk or drive up testing across the state. No appointment is necessary, but pre-registration is encouraged. For information about how to get tested, click here.
  • Hartford Health is offering drive-up and walk-in testing across Connecticut. For more information about testing sites and hours, call 1-833-621-0600 or click here.
  • Trinity Health is offering testing at Johnson Memorial, Saint Francis, and Saint Mary’s hospitals, as well as free mobile testing sites in Hartford and Waterbury. To learn more about which option may be best for you call 888-786-2790 or click here.
  • Charter Oak Health Center is offering free COVID-19 walk up patients through their mobile testing sites. They also are offering testing at Hartford Public Schools. For their latest schedule, please click here. You can also get a test at 21 Grand Street in Hartford. More information can be found here.
  • If you need a rapid COVID-19 test, CVS Health is offering free rapid testing at Samuel V. Arroyo Recreation Center in Hartford. Please call Hartford 311 at 860-757-9311 to schedule an appointment and pre-register. The rapid testing site will not test people who do not have an appointment or who do not meet the testing criteria.
  • You can also use Connecticut’s COVID-19 testing center finder here.

Please visit the State of Connecticut’s COVID resource page if you are looking for general assistance or guidance regarding coronavirus and resources available to you.

I will continue to fight for the funding and resources our communities need to combat the public health crisis.

Member of Congress
