Kent COVID-19 testing site to remain open through mid-March

The COVID-19 testing site at the Kent Transfer Station has tested over 2,100 people so far.  The site, which operates on Mondays from 3pm to 7pm, will stay open through at least March 15th.  First Selectman Jean Speck says outside of small clusters at the schools, the town's numbers continue to be very low.  Around Thanksgiving Kent's test positivity rate was about 28-percent.  There was a spike around Christmas attributed to an uptick at South Kent School.  Cases fell significantly in January to about 10-percent.  Two more school outbreaks brought the numbers back up, but this month Kent's test positivity was hovering around 5 percent.
