COVID-19 Test Collection Location

 

DERBY: Griffin Hospital COVID-19 Test Collection Site

 

Griffin Health has been approved by the Connecticut Department of Public Health to provide a drive-up collection facility for COVID-19 testing on the Griffin Hospital campus, 130 Division Street, Derby.

In order to initiate the testing process at the new collection facility, a person with COVID-19 symptoms will need to have a valid order for the test from a licensed independent healthcare practitioner (MD, DO, APRN or PA). Patients with a valid order can schedule an appointment at 203-437-6815.

The Griffin Health COVID-19 Drive-Up Test Collection Site is located in the hospital’s upper parking lot near the Community Garden. Patients should arrive at the test site at their scheduled time where their order and pre-registration will be confirmed. Patients will then proceed to the covered testing area. A trained Griffin caregiver will collect a sample using a nasal swab.

After the sample is collected, patients will be instructed to self-quarantine until they receive the test results and further instruction from their healthcare provider. Testing of samples will be conducted by third party laboratories and results will normally be available within 24-48 hours.

EXPERIENCING POST COVID SYMPTOMS?

Sometimes COVID-19 symptoms can last for months, due to damage caused to lungs, heart, and the brain after first being infected with the virus that caused COVID-19.  These conditions are sometimes named “Long COVID” or “Post-COVID-19 Syndrome,” while others refer to themselves as “Long Haulers.” Regardless of the name given, take comfort knowing that help is available.  Most people with Post-COVID Syndrome or Long COVID experience the effects of COVID-19 that persist for more than four weeks after being diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus.

Griffin Health Long COVID-19 Therapy provides a compassionate, comprehensive and coordinated approach to treating Long COVID-19 that empowers individuals to manage and significantly improve their symptoms. We’re here to help “COVID-19 Long haulers” safely and confidently overcome symptoms that are affecting their education, work, sleep and favorite activities.
