Testing

For Testing Providers: Publicly listing your testing site

Instructions for how to post your testing site, or update your listing are available here. Please, review testing site listings regularly to ensure the information is as up to date as possible. 

COVID-19 Get tested Tool Kit - portal.ct.gov/coronavirus/testingtoolkit

This tool kit is will support every town, or organization in their efforts to promote COVID-19 testing in the State of Connecticut. You'll find posters, door hangers, social media graphics, examples of ads, and more.

These materials give direct, easy-to-follow information for every resident who may have symptoms of COVID-19. 

Every resident of Connecticut should get tested if they have symptoms. A more detailed guide that walks you through all of the materials - available in English and Spanish - is also part of the tool kit. 

Priority Populations Testing Tool Kit - knowingisbetterct.org/toolkit

Residents in our priority communities - those living in densely populated areas, in congregate settings, and in towns experiencing outbreaks should get tested regularly (even if they're asymptomatic). To help ensure our priority communities have information about how they can get tested regardless of insurance coverage - and regardless of documentation status, use this tool kit. It's also available in English and Spanish. 

Please, also direct anyone who needs a no-cost testing site near them to ct.gov/prioritytesting.
