HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – Connecticut received a partial shipment of its at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits early Friday morning after a delay canceled all distribution events scheduled for Thursday.

Earlier this week, Lamont announced that 500,000 iHealth kits, which contain two tests each, would arrive in time for local officials to distribute them starting on Thursday, through the first week of January. The governor announced late Wednesday afternoon that the anticipated shipment had been delayed.

Officials in cities and towns across the state started announcing plans for distributing free at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits and N95 masks.

An additional two million tests will be distributed to K-12 schools across the state starting in January and continuing throughout the school year, as supplies last. The state will also distribute six million N95 masks to the general public and schools.

The list below was made before the governor announced the delay on Wednesday. Town and city officials will provide updated distribution plans once plans are finalized. News 8 will update this list as information becomes available.
