HARTFORD, Conn. — As Connecticut continues efforts to curb rising COVID-19 cases amid the Delta and Omicron variants, the state is set to distribute three million COVID-19 at-home rapid tests, and six million N95 masks.

Distribution of the kits was scheduled to begin on Thursday, Dec. 30, and is expected to run through the following week.

The state experienced order issues last week, which postponed a few distribution events. But, between Dec. 31 and Jan. 3, the state has distributed 575,040 tests to communities across Connecticut. The state received over one million tests in the past day and millions more are on the way, Gov. Ned Lamont said Monday evening. Over 3 million N95 masks have been distributed to local communities for them to give to their residents.
