The Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company worked in conjunction with Candlewood Company, Police, Emergency Management, The Health Department and the First Selectman in distributing at home Covid-19 tests from the State. Cars lined up starting at 8am and all of the test kits were distributed within an hour of opening up at 10:45. The distribution site was forced to open early as traffic was becoming a safety issue. In addition to the Tests, the majority of cars were given 2 KN95 masks, 6 surgical masks, and a 3 pack of hand sanitizer.
New Fairfield also distributed its share. According to social media posts, all of the kits were distributed there within an hour.
Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says distribution in his town over the weekend went smoothly.
