Governor Lamont Declaration with update on shipping COVID-19 rapid tests at home

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today released the following statement with an update on Connecticut’s expected shipment of COVID-19 rapid tests at home:

“Due to shipping and warehouse delays beyond State Connecticut’s control, our state’s expected shipment of COVID-19 home tests is currently delayed from arriving in Connecticut. My staff and several government agencies have spent the last many days working around the clock. around to accelerate the movement of our tests through what is clearly a bottleneck for shipping and distribution on the west coast in the midst of an unprecedented international demand for testing.I would like to thank our municipal and emergency partners who have quickly and efficiently established their methods of distributing the tests and clearly communicating them to their communities.My administration is in regular communication with city and town leaders and we will provide updates as we have them to distribute the tests as quickly as possible.I thank our staff and management in the Department of Administrative Services, Department of Public Health, Division of Em Emergency Management and Homeland Security and the Connecticut National Guard for their incredible work in delivering this test delivery. “
