Bethel has received the first of what is hoped to be several shipments of COVID home test kits and N95 masks. Residents will be able to pick them up on Sunday, January 2nd. The initial quantities are very limited, about half the number of test kits than originally expected. Due to the limited supply, this distribution is being limited to Bethel residents and frontline workers who work directly with the public that are having symptoms of COVID19 or had a known exposure to COVID19. ID will be required to receive one test kit per household. Distribution will be held at the Bethel High School “Junior Parking Lot” (directly across Whittlesey Drive from DeSantis Stadium beginning at 11am. Residents are asked to only use the Plumtrees Road entrance to the school campus and to wear a mask when picking up the test kit. Residents are also asked not to queue up early. Bethel police will be on hand to ensure Plumtrees Drive and Whittlesey Drive remain open and accessible.
