Newtown officials have announced plans for how to distribute its share of at home COVID-19 test kits coming from the state. Allocations will be made from Reed Intermediate School Friday at 10am, up to two test kits per household with proof of residency, on a first-come, first served basis. Because that's a heavily traveled area, Newtown Police will be on Wasserman Way and Trades Lane to ensure no one is queuing up before the site opens. Queing or waiting will also not be allowed on the Fairfield Hills campus.
Any Newtown resident seeking to get a test kit will have to plan to arrive at or after 10 am.
There is a sign-up/registration to obtain a test kit. Each household can receive a maximum of two kits. Duplicate appointments will be canceled. Proof of residency and confirmed appointment will be required. Residents are asked to have the printed email confirmation and ID ready when arriving at the distribution site. Residents are also asked to only arrive during their scheduled time slot.
