COVID-19 Testing – Premier Urgent Care in Connecticut
We are offering COVID-19 testing at our urgent care clinic in Newington, CT. We are also open for all your urgent care needs. For more information please call us or book an appointment online. We serve patients from Newington CT, Oxford CT, New Britain CT, Wethersfield CT, Hartford CT, West Hartford CT, Bristol CT and Cromwell CT.
Covid PCR tests for the sole purpose of travel, work, school or sports are done as walk-in visits only, and only as space is available. Please do not make an appointment unless you are having medical symptoms or have a medical problem.
Covid 19 Virus PCR tests (gentle nasal swab) are available with a 2 to 3 day lab turnaround time.
The PCR test is still the best available Covid test to see if you are infected with the Covid virus, whether you have symptoms or not.
In general, it is the PCR test that is required for air travel, and often for employers or schools.
If you do not have any of the above symptoms or risks, please make an appointment for an “in-clinic visit”. Any tests, including Covid 19, will be done safely in the clinic
Premier Urgent Care has always been commended by our patients for its cleanliness. During this pandemic we have taken this to a new level. In addition to our meticulous use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) we have:
- Super Air scrubber Rooms are used for all testing. The air is refreshed every 7 minutes.
- All surfaces are also cleaned and disinfected in between every patient.
- All patients, family members, guests, and staff are required to wear a face mask at all times while in the clinic.
- Social Distancing is maintained.
- Every person who enters the clinic, as well as all staff, are screened with temperature checks.
We are very good at getting our patients in and out in a relatively quick manner. If there is a wait time, and you would prefer to wait in your car until being placed in an exam room, please let us know and we will call you.
