Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) is expanding its COVID-19 testing capacity to Milford by opening a new testing site at the Connecticut Post Mall on December 30. Testing at the mall will be located in front of Sears and open weekly Monday-Thursday from 10am-2pm.
An increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in Connecticut has resulted in greater demand for testing. CHC offers testing at 18 locations throughout Connecticut. Testing is free, available to all ages, offered on a drive-in or walk-up basis, and does not require an appointment. People receiving tests do not need to have symptoms, and may return for repeat testing as needed.
“CHC is delighted to make this new testing resource available to residents of Milford and the surrounding communities,” commented Amy Taylor, CHC Western Region Vice President. “With people returning from holiday travel and students going back to school, additional capacity is needed to make sure everyone can stay safe as the pandemic continues through the winter months.”
“Expanded access to testing for those who work, live, and access services in Milford is yet another critical step in our fight against COVID-19,” said Mayor Benjamin Blake on behalf of the City of Milford. “We are hopeful that Milford residents and those around us will take advantage of this local testing option to keep everyone as safe as possible as cases continue to remain at high levels.”
