WL Continues Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing

  • Patients will be evaluated by Priority Urgent Care providers via telemedicine (860-454-0678) before testing is performed
  • Anyone can call and be tested

The Town of Windsor Locks and Priority Urgent Care in Ellington will continue their partnership to offer COVID-19 drive-through testing. Tests will be performed at Veterans Park on Southwest Avenue Friday, June 5, 2020 between the hours of 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. The tests will be available to all regardless of symptoms, insurance status or ability to pay.

Anyone interested in being tested is strongly encouraged to call to be evaluated over the phone in advance of the testing. This evaluation will be completed by Priority Urgent Care.  The phone number is (860) 454-0678. Anyone interested can call on Wednesday or Thursday prior for evaluation.  Appointments for Friday testing will be assigned during the evaluation.   The tests are drive-through only and not available to pedestrians for the safety of all.

Symptoms of COVID-19 are varied and can range from flu like illness, abdominal symptoms, and conjunctivitis. Fever and shortness of breath are the more concerning symptoms, but patients can have malaise or generalized fatigue as well. Anyone with these symptoms can contact us and be evaluated for testing. For further information on symptoms please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

Those being tested do not need to be current patients of Priority Urgent Care but must complete a medical screening by a provider at Priority Urgent Care. This evaluation will be done over the phone or by video telemedicine. Those who have not been pre-screened in advance will be evaluated by telephone at the testing site as time permits.  Evaluations will be conducted regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
