COVID-19 Testing

Yale New Haven Health has multiple COVID-19 public testing sites to accommodate adults and children who may have symptoms (symptomatic), those without symptoms (asymptomatic), and also those scheduled for procedures at our locations. No appointment is necessary. Drive-through, walk-up and mobile testing centers are located throughout Connecticut, with an additional site in Westerly, Rhode Island.

All COVID-19 tests at Yale New Haven Health are PCR tests, which detect genetic material in the virus. These tests are considered to be the highest quality tests because of their superior accuracy in detecting COVID-19, even in people who are asymptomatic.

Our testing sites offer:

  • Reliable PCR tests
  • Same day, and next day appointments
  • Results typically available in less than 24 hours
  • Convenient self-scheduling
  • Many sites are open seven days a week

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I get tested even if I have been vaccinated?

Yes, it is important to continue to be tested if you are experiencing symptoms or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, even after vaccination. Please do not attribute your symptoms to allergies or a cold simply because you have been vaccinated. There continues to be transmission of COVID-19 by people who do not have symptoms or who do not know they are infected. Timely and frequent testing will help identify and prevent the unintentional spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities.

Why is testing for COVID-19 still important since so many people have been vaccinated?

There are younger populations (ie, less than 12 years old) that are not yet eligible for vaccination. Continuing to be tested for Covid-19 helps the entire population by detecting variants and preventing transmission to individuals who have not been able to be vaccinated. It is also critically important to continue testing for the health of our families, friends and communities as the state of CT continues to open up our schools and businesses.

Can I get my child tested?

Yes, we perform COVID-19 tested on all ages from 0 and up.

What is the cost of a COVID-19 test?

All tests will be billed through the individual’s medical insurance. According to our guidelines at this time, patients will not receive a bill for testing, even if you do not have medical insurance.

How will I receive the results?

All results will be available via YNHHS MyChart and to the ordering provider.

If you scheduled your test through our self-scheduling website, you will receive a call from the YNHHS COVID-19 Call Center if you have a positive result. Negative results only will be available through MyChart.

How long does it take to get my results?

Most results are available in your MyChart account and to the ordering provider within 24-48 hours.

What should I do if I test positive?

It’s important to call your primary care provider. If you do not have one, please contact the YNHHS COVID Hotline Call Center at (833)- ASK-YNHH or (833)-275-9644 7 days per week 7am-7pm.
