The City of Danbury COVID-19 at home self-test kit distribution will take place on a first come first serve basis on Sunday January 2, 2022 between 3pm and 6pm, or while supplies last.  The drive thru distribution will be held at the Western Connecticut State University West Side Campus, 43 Lake Avenue Extension Danbury. Test kit quantities are well below the anticipated amounts so the very limited supply will be restricted to 1 kit per vehicle, Danbury residents only.

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.  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. 

Brookfield will distributed 760 test kits at Brookfield Town Hall on Sunday, January 2nd from noon to 1pm in the Town Hall Parking lot. Distribution is based on a first come, first served basis. Each household may have two boxes if necessary, but if only one is needed residents are asked to only take one in order to maximize the small allocation. There are two COVID tests per box.

New Fairfield has been allocated approximately 950 at home COVID-19 test kits containing two tests each.  The test kits will be distributed January 2 in front of the Middle School from 1pm to 4pm, or until supplies last.  Residents are asked to enter the campus via the driveway closest to Peerless Equipment and exit from the new west side driveway.  Proof of New Fairfield residency is required, and test kits will be limited to no more than two per household.

New Milford had residents sign up for a time to pick up the kits and anyone with a confirmed reservation will be contacted with a new date and time when more information is received.  The appointments for about 3600 kits were filled quickly.  New Milford residents will need to show proof of residency at pick up.  Only one test kit per household, unless there are minor children, will be distributed. 

Newtown officials required appointments for its share of at home COVID-19 test kits coming from the state.  Allocations will be made from Reed Intermediate School, up to two test kits per household with proof of residency and confirmed appointment.  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. There was a sign-up/registration to obtain a test kit. 

Ridgefield will distribute kits on a first come, first served bases at a drive through location. To avoid false starts, the time and place for this distribution will not be announced until the test kits are in Ridgefield. Notification will be made through ridgefieldalerts.com.

Sherman will distribute rapid COVID-19 home test kits on Sunday, January 2, from 10 am until noon, or while supply lasts, at the Sherman School outside on the sidewalk by the front office. One kit per household. Proof of Sherman residence is required at the drive-thru pick-up.
