Airport officials in Windsor Locks are looking at testing for arriving passengers in a terminal or parking lot, according to the Hartford Courant.
The hope is that the tests would deliver results fast enough to avoid the 14-day quarantine period people are expected to observe when traveling to Connecticut or Massachusetts from most other states.
Connecticut state politicians have been clamoring for airport testing since at least June. Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said he has spoken with airport authorities about implementing COVID-19 testing. It is not clear who would pay for the testing.
The San Francisco International Airport was the first US airport to have rapid COVID-19 testing for passengers. The service became available in late-August.
