Danbury COVID-19 test site sees significant drop in attendees

There's been a significant decrease in the number of people looking for free COVID-19 testing in Danbury at the state-sponsored site.  Testing this week moved back to the Pat Waldron building on Memorial Drive.  700 PCR tests are available each day.  Testing during the week is done from 3pm to 7pm and on weekends from 9am to 3pm. 

There's a new traffic pattern, and police are guiding cars to the site.  Electronic portable signs will also be used to alert motorists if testing capacity has been reached before the scheduled closing time. 

Health Director Kara Prunty says they were doing 700 to 800 tests a day around the holidays, but it's since dropped to about 100 to 200 tests daily. 

SEMA4 is only running testing through the end of the month.  State officials are still working to replace the lab company, but don't anticipate any sites shutting down.
