Anyone interested can call on Wednesday or Thursday prior for evaluation.  Appointments for Friday testing will be assigned during the evaluation.   The tests are drive-through only and not available to pedestrians for the safety of all.

Symptoms of COVID-19 are varied and can range from flu like illness, abdominal symptoms, and conjunctivitis. Fever and shortness of breath are the more concerning symptoms, but patients can have malaise or generalized fatigue as well. Anyone with these symptoms can contact us and be evaluated for testing. For further information on symptoms please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

Those being tested do not need to be current patients of Priority Urgent Care but must complete a medical screening by a provider at Priority Urgent Care.

Those who have not been pre-screened in advance will be evaluated by telephone at the testing site as time permits.  Evaluations will be conducted regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.

On Monday, our Health Care Director reported eight additional positive test results for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) involving Windsor Locks residents. One additional death was also reported. The Health Director noted that the reported cases were generally older cases that had not been previously entered into the State Department of Public Health database and do not represent a one-day spike. No new cases were reported yesterday or today and our understanding is that the state is experiencing system malfunctions that are preventing the entry of new data and access by our Health Director into the system.

These additional cases bring the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases involving Windsor Locks residents to ninety-three and the total number of those cases resulting in a death to twenty.

Windsor Locks citizens are asked to do all they can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. According to the health department, we have entered a period of widespread community transmission, which means that we should not assume that the reported cases are the only infected people within our community.

Residents should follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Connecticut Department of Public Health.

“We at Priority Urgent Care strive to provide high quality and affordable care at our locations.

This will allow us to test and isolate people who might infect others while allowing others to go out and participate in normal life activities.” He added “I would like to thank the Town of Windsor Locks and First Selectman Kervick. They have been a great resource as we try to expand our services to more and more people who need testing. They have allowed us to safely and reliably treat our patients while maintaining safety to our staff and the public.”

On April 4, 2020, I issue an executive order to address security measures related to scheduling and conducting public meetings via remote means. Since then, our remote meeting provider has added additional security measures and we have gained practical experience in conducting remote meetings that allow us to modify the previous order. Accordingly, the following orders are effective immediately and supersede the April 4, 2020 order:

All Windsor Locks boards, commissions and agencies, when conducting a public meeting via remote means, shall adhere to the following security measures.

1.         The published agenda for the meeting shall include the link to join the meeting remotely via the internet or telephone. Do not share the link on social media. Members of the public are asked to cooperate in not republishing the link on social media.

2.         Meeting hosts shall use the waiting room feature and not admit members of the public to remote meetings until just prior to the start of the meeting or, if a member of the public requests to join after the meeting has begun, as soon as possible after requesting to join.

3.         Screen-sharing shall be restricted by the host before and during a meeting.

4.         Meeting participants shall be identified by first and last name during the meeting whenever possible. The identification of a participant by partial name, nickname or phone number is discouraged.

5.         All members of the public shall be muted with video disabled during the meeting unless the member of the public has been recognized to address the meeting. In such cases, the host will unmute (and at the discretion of the chairperson of the meeting enable the video) of the member of the public during such time as he or she is addressing the meeting.

6.         In meeting file transfer shall be disabled by the host.
