Hartford HealthCare has two websites offering current wait-times for people seeking to take a COVID-19 test.
The information comes at a time when long lines to get tested have been reported across Connecticut.
According to Hartford HealthCare's websites, on Thursday, around 1:30 p.m., nearly all of its testing sites had wait times of 1-2 hours or more. The lone standout was the urgent care center in Wethersfield on Silas Deane Highway where the wait was about 15 minutes for walk-ins.
Hartford HealthCare operates a network of hospitals, urgent care centers, and other health care facilities in Connecticut. Network locations include Backus, St. Vincent’s, and Hartford hospitals as well as 18 urgent care centers.
