Danbury officials are still working on logistics for distributing the City's share of at-home COVID-19 test kits from the state. A drive thru site will be set up to give out two kits per car on a first-come, first-served basis at a date, time and place still to be determined. Details are expected to be released later today.
Emergency Management Director Matt Cassavechia says they've identified a number of sites and want to chose the one where vehicles will be able to get through in a safe and efficient manner to keep traffic flowing.
The City of Danbury has reported triple digit COVID-19 cases on three days in the last week. There were 129 cases reported last Tuesday, 123 on Sunday and 178 on Monday.
