The Town of Enfield Announces Covid-19 Testing Site for Enfield Residents

The Town of Enfield is partnering with the North Central District Health Department and PhysicianOne to offer free PCR COVID-19 tests for the Enfield community beginning February 1st. The testing site will be located at The Annex, at 124 North Maple Street. The hours will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-7pm, and on Saturdays from 10am-1pm.

“With the Omicron variant and difficulty in finding timely testing locations, the Town Council decided that this would be a great use of our American Rescue Plan federal dollars,” said Mayor Bob Cressotti. “We want to make sure that Enfield residents have access to tests so we can stop the spread of the virus, and also so residents can continue to work if they are required to test weekly. The partnership with PhysicianOne will allow for both adults and minors to be tested.”

Residents must register online to make an appointment. Information on how to register and create an account is available on the Town website and the Town Manager’s Facebook page. “Residents may create accounts by using either their cell phone or their email address, and results will then be sent there,” said Deputy Mayor Gina Cekala. “While we hope that the surge is over and we are back on the path to normalcy, we also want to ensure that Enfield is using all of our available resources to ensure the community stays healthy.”

The Enfield Town Council recently passed a resolution designating $50,000 of its ARPA funds to be given to the North Central District Health Department, which in turn contracted with PhysicianOne to provide the testing services. “This is a free testing service that will continue until the money runs out,” said Interim Town Manager Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.
