COVID-19 TESTING INFORMATION
Immediate Care will be offering COVID-19 RT-PCR testing at the Middletown Train Station each week on Monday and Thursday from 3:00 - 7:00 PM. Results will be emailed within 48-72 hours. Testing is covered by insurance unless a test is deemed not to be medically necessary (i.e. you are not showing symptoms or have been exposed).

Please note separate registration is required for each person in your group being tested. A photo ID is not required for children.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Testing will be administered by Immediate Care in conjunction with Capital Health Laboratory.
Can I make an appointment?
Appointments are not being taken. Tests will be given in the order in which you arrive on the days testing is being offered.
What do I need for testing?
To expedite the process, each person will need:
- Two (2) photocopies of their photo ID and insurance card
- To complete the online form using the QR code on their smartphone
- No eating or drinking one (1) hour before test - water is okay
I have a flip phone and cannot access the QR code.
I did not receive a confirmation email?
Once completing the form, if you did not receive a confirmation email, you do not have to resubmit the application. The QR forms go directly to the lab. If you enter the testing site and they do not have confirmation of your form, they will tell you how to proceed.
Can multiple people be in one car?
Yes. However, each person will need the required documentation prior to testing. A photo ID is not required for children.

Android: Hold down home button. Click on lens icon. Point screen at QR code. Click the link to open the fillable form.
If the CODE does not open: Go to GOOGLE play store. Search for QR & Barcode Reader. Install the green scanner app. Once installed you can use it to scan the code. Complete the fillable form.
I don't have insurance, can I get tested?
