ON-SITE COVID-19 TESTING
Bradley Airport now has two COVID-19 testing sites. Passengers can take a PCR COVID-19 test in the airport’s baggage claim with Genesys Diagnostics or at a Hartford HealthCare drive-through location in the airport’s Parking Lot 3.
Testing inside the terminal is only for ticketed passengers (and employees). The mobile site is open to passengers as well as the public.

Skip the shuttle, and park in our garage, only a short walking distance away from the terminal.
We have temporarily consolidated all parking, with garage parking available for $8 per day.
