Due to the increase in demand at COVID-19 testing sites around the state, the lab limited the number of COVID-19 tests in Kent yesterday to 175, and that was limit was reached early. First Selectman Jean Speck says the Omicron variant is overwhelming test sites across the country, which is causing turnaround times for results to exceed the 48-hour timeframe. The lab is increasing the limit to 250 tests for tomorrow in Kent. The Community Emergency Response Team will have traffic control at the Transfer Station. First responders should use the priority line through the Town Garage entrance, and park along the fence inside.
