Testing Listing and Locator Information
United Way 211, in collaboration with the State, maintains a list of all of the testing sites, and ensures that they are posted on 211ct.org/. There are a variety of filters and search functions available under “Advanced Filters” that can help you find a site that makes sense for you.
When the State of Connecticut advertises testing site information, there are two primary links that are used: ct.gov/coronavirus, and ct.gov/. Here’s the difference:
The zip code box on the top right corner of ct.gov/coronavirus allows users to type in their zip code, and be directed to a list of testing sites with those nearest them at the top of the list. This list will be inclusive of all of the testing sites in the state – with no filters applied.
The zip code box on ct.gov/ does the same thing with one exception: it uses the “Priority Testing” filter, which directs users to tests paid for by the state at no cost to the patient – regardless of insurance, regardless of documentation status.

If you need to update a listing, please search for your site on the list. Towards the bottom of each listing you’ll see something that says “See something incorrect? Update this Listing” - please click on the “Update this Listing” link, and enter any changes.
Filter Options Available on 211
There are a number of filters available to make sure that people can find the type of testing site that they need. By clicking on “Advanced Filters” - you can use a variety of filters including:
Testing sites open now
Testing sites open on specific days
Testing sites that serve asymptomatic patients
Testing sites that serve pediatric patients
Testing sites that do not require appointments
Priority population (free of charge, no insurance or documentation required) testing sites
Testing Sites with Tests Paid for by the State
In order to ensure that when we say “free testing, regardless of insurance, regardless of documentation status,” no one is directed somewhere where they are asked for insurance or identification, or incurs any charge – we have a “Priority Testing” filter references above. This is only for sites contracted with the State of Connecticut.
Please email Alana Kroeber from 211 at email@example.com to ensure your site is included in the filter should your site be contracted with the state.
