Area towns hold off on rescheduling at home test kit distributions

Connecticut officials announced today that the anticipated at-home COVID-19 test kits did not arrive last night therefore no distributions today will be possible.  Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi says the town has a distribution plan ready to implement, but there will be no announcements until they are certain the test kits will be available. 

Updated Ridgefield information will be posted on the town website. 

The Town of Bridgewater has worked out a distribution plan for the at-home COVID-19 rapid tests from the state, once they arrive in Connecticut.  First Selectman Curtis Read says the current plan is to first cover critical emergency workers like EMTs, firefighters, police and school staff, then staff at the senior center, library and town hall followed by elderly or at risk populations and eventually the general public.  Bridgewater is expecting an allocation of 200 to 250 kits.  A drive through at the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department will be set up when kits are available to the public. 

Read noted that this is a stressful time as the Omicron variant of COVID surges, and asked residents to take care to minimize the potential for transmission over the New Year’s holiday weekend.
