Set to open next week, the specially equipped tent located at BDL’s Parking Lot 3 will offer tests without appointment daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The tests, which involve a small nasal swab for both nostrils, take less than five minutes to administer, and results are usually provided within 72 hours. Billing for the test is handled through individuals’ insurance plans, and residents of Massachusetts may use this site to be tested.
“We are very pleased to partner with Hartford HealthCare in bringing their expertise and added testing capacity to Bradley International Airport,” said Kevin Dillon, CAA executive director. “The CAA firmly believes that testing is an important element as the world adjusts to the new way of traveling and this new site helps ensure adequate testing availability and convenience for residents in the region as well as our passengers.”
The new Hartford HealthCare drive-through testing site is BDL’s second testing location, following the opening of a site in the airport’s baggage claim area.
