FREE COVID TESTING AVAILABLE

Dear Bethany Residents:

The following information was shared with us from Woodbridge First Selectman, Beth Heller.

The Town of Woodbridge will provide COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic individuals once a month for the next few months through Sema4 and the State of Connecticut. Test dates are this Sunday 12/20, Sunday Jan. 17 and Sun Feb. 14 from 1:30-4:30 at the Town’s Center Building Gym.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms, please call your doctor for an appointment to get a test.

The three scheduled test events will all happen at the Center Building Gym (4 Meetinghouse Lane). The line will start outside, go down the hallway and wind through the gym with people exiting through the gym’s side door.

If these dates/times do not work for you or you want additional options, you may check CT’s 211 Testing Locator and enter your town, zip code or street address to find testing locations closest to you.

Griffin Hospital in Derby has expanded their hours to offer weekend testing times. If you call 203-437-6815 to make an appointment and use the word “community” you will not need a doctor’s note for a test appointment.

In New Haven the Fair Haven Community Health Clinic is operating daily testing at 293 East Street — no doctor’s note required. They are taking walk-ups and appointments. Call 203-871-4179.

As a result of how widespread the pandemic is in Woodbridge and Bethany, I continue to ask all residents to PLEASE wear a mask at all times, especially on Town property, including our walking trails and the playgrounds (unless you have a medical exemption or are under the age of 2).  Please continue to do three simple things: wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and maintain your distance.
