STAMFORD, CT – Stamford Mayor David Martin announced the State of Connecticut’s COVID-19 testing site for City employees began operations today. This testing site is operated by Hartford Health. Mayor Martin received a test to demonstrate to City employees how easy it is to get tested.

“As we begin to reopen the City, it is vital we keep testing our workforce to ensure we don’t experience a second outbreak of the virus,” said Mayor David Martin. “We can continue our reopening plans and avoid a second lockdown as long as we are proactive about testing. This is a self-swab test that is quick and non-invasive. I encourage all of our staff to get tested regardless of if they have symptoms or believe they have been exposed.”
