We are now offering COVID-19 vaccine appointment scheduling at our Walk-In Center at 292 Long Ridge Road. Please remember, masks are required in all Stamford Health facilities and you may be asked to provide proof of vaccination.

Stamford Health offers three options for COVID-19 (nasal swab) testing, plus the antibody test at our draw stations.

At Stamford Health, it's our goal to make COVID-19 testing accessible to the communities we serve. We're committed to your health, safety and wellbeing as we work together to stop the spread of the pandemic. Please note that at all of our testing facilities, we require the use of masks or facial coverings. We also require you to adhere to social distancing guidelines as determined by each facility. We appreciate your cooperation.

You may also be wondering about the cost of COVID-19 testing. The cost of testing depends on your insurance plan. Copays will be highest at the Emergency Department and Stamford Health’s Immediate Care Center and lowest at the PATH testing sites. We encourage you to call your insurance carrier for specific information about costs related to COVID-19 testing.

Antibody Testing

Antibody Testing

Antibody testing is not used to diagnose COVID-19. It is a blood test to determine if you’ve been exposed to the virus in the past. It also determines the body’s natural immune response to the virus. A physician may request a COVID Antibody test, also called a COVID IgG and IgM test, under two different scenarios:

  • If your physician is ordering a COVID Antibody test to determine previous exposure to COVID virus:
    1. Get a prescription from your doctor first. If you don’t have a doctor, call 1.877.233.WELL for a referral to someone who can write you a prescription.
    2. Go to any Stamford Health Blood Draw Station for your test.
  • If your physician is ordering a COVID Antibody test because you are currently COVID Positive and need to be screened prior to being scheduled for Monoclonal Antibody infusion treatment:
    1. Discuss your options with your doctor. If your doctor decides that you are a candidate for Monoclonal Antibody infusion treatment, your doctor will write a prescription for the test.
    2. Go to the Stamford Health PATH COVID Collection Center located at the main hospital campus at 1 Hospital Plaza, Wheeler Building, which is open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
      NOTE: It is preferable to make an appointment prior to your arrival by calling the scheduling center at 203-276-3300. Scheduling center representatives are available to schedule appointments Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. If your doctor requests that your are tested immediately, walk-ins will be accommodated on an as-needed basis.
    1. Do not go to a public draw station if you are actively COVID Positive.
