Beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, UConn Health in Farmington will offer a drive up testing center, as long as patients have an order from their doctor.

There are a few rules potential patients have to follow in order to get tested.

First and foremost, they must make an appointment and have a valid order for testing from a doctor

Also, they must bring a valid license and make sure the vehicle they arrive in has windows that roll all the way down. The vehicle must also be lower than 8 feet in height.

UConn Health said on Monday that it received the first approval in the state to be an alternative space for triage.

A triage tent was set up outside of UConn's John Dempsey Hospital to potentially treat additional COVID-19 patients.

UConn said it is preparing in an event of a surge of coronavirus patients.

Anyone displaying symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19, and are unable to get into contact with their primary care physician, they can reach out to one of the following hotlines:

  • Hartford HealthCare Hotline: 860-972-8100
  • Yale New Haven Health: 833-484-1200
