The CT DPH has issued the following guidance for the at-home, rapid COVID-19 test kits being distributed this week. This guidance was issued following Governor Ned Lamont’s recent announcement of plans to distribute three million COVID-19 at-home rapid tests and six million N95 masks to help curb the spread of COVID-19 during this heavy travel and holiday season.
The at-home tests and N95 masks are being distributed by the state to municipalities and school districts. Each municipality and school district will then determine how best to provide them to people who live in their respective cities and towns. The guidance includes one FAQ for the municipalities and one FAQ for the public. It is recommended that the town hand out the public FAQ to recipients at the municipal POD.
