Help website launched for CT residents using COVID test kits

The governor also said they are set to distribute nearly a million test kits statewide and are expected to pass that milestone on Thursday.

HARTFORD, Connecticut – As hundreds of thousands of people across Connecticut get their hands on the COVID-19 rapid home test kits, state health officials want to make it easier for residents to use a test.

Governor Ned Lamont announced Wednesday evening that the state has launched a website dedicated to helping residents fully understand how to use their COVID-19 test kit.

The website has a list of answers to frequently asked questions, information on where to find a test kit, and instruction videos for each brand of test kit available on distribution sites.

The governor also said they are set to distribute nearly a million test kits statewide and are expected to pass that milestone on Thursday.

Despite an ordering incident last week, the state received several shipments of COVID-19 self-test kits and N95 face masks that have since been distributed to towns and villages across the state. FOX61 has a list of COVID test kit and N95 mask distribution events here.
