Next week, we will continue with twice-weekly community COVID-19 testing in partnership with Waveny LifeCare Network for residents who have traveled or otherwise wish to be tested. PCR COVID-19 testing will be available (for New Canaan residents and Town employees only) next Tuesday and Thursday, September 21st and 23rd from 7:00 a.m.to 10 a.m. at the Paddle Lodge in Waveny Park. Pre-registration is required and you must bring your insurance card, a credit card and a photo ID to your test appointment. (Your insurance may pay the $100 SEMA4 lab fee, but if not your credit card will be charged.) No walk-ins are permitted.
Turnaround time for PCR test results is 24-48 hours and results will be received via email in the SEMA4 portal, for which you will receive instructions on how to access at your test appointment.
