Several cities, towns plan to hand out COVID tests today | Connecticut News
ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) – People on Monday are expected to line up in several cities and towns to get free at-home COVID testing kits.
Towns offering the kits on Monday include Wethersfield, Milford, Southington, Stafford, and Rocky Hill.
The events will be like a distribution event held in Waterbury over the weekend.
Anyone planning on heading out to try and grab a test was told to be aware of a few things.
First, towns and cities across the state have received limited numbers of the test kits.
Second, they’re available on a first-come first-serve basis.
That means people should expect long lines.
