Not Sure Which Virus to test for?

This fall season, COVID-19, RSV and influenza are likely to spread quickly.

Common Questions

Can I get tested for COVID-19 and flu at the same time?

Yes you can! In fact, The Urgent Care Center of Connecticut offers combination COVID-19 and flu testing so you can get tested for both diseases to determine the cause of your illness.
Call us today and our providers will offer COVID-19 testing and combo flu tests for any patient. Additionally, our providers can test for other illnesses such as strep throat to help determine the cause of your current illness.

If I have COVID-19 or the flu what should I do?

Patients that have COVID-19 or the flu may need to stay at home and monitor their symptoms during quarantine. At-home rest, drinking fluids, and reducing time outdoors can help control symptoms from getting worse and spreading possible flu and COVID viruses to others.

If you have the flu you may want to take a few days off. The CDC recommends quarantine for more than a week if you have a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Seasonal illnesses aren't going away anytime soon so it's best to speak with an urgent care provider ASAP to ensure that you can diagnose illnesses before they worsen.
