First Selectman Fred Camillo announces second distribution of COVID-19 home test kits for Greenwich residents

First Selectman Fred Camillo has announced the second distribution of COVID-19 home test kits for Greenwich residents.
 
The kits will be distributed free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis to Greenwich residents from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at Grass Island Park.
 
A portion of the test kits are being directed toward special service providers in Town, as well as to Greenwich schools, housing facilities, health care facilities and essential Town workers.
 
On Saturday, four tests packaged in two boxes will be handed out to each vehicle. This will be strictly enforced in order to achieve the widest and fairest distribution of the test kits.
 
Residents must show proof of their Greenwich residency, such as a valid Connecticut driver’s license or a 2021 Greenwich Park Pass. All drivers and passengers must remain in their vehicles and must wear face masks when receiving their test kits. Each vehicle may pass through the distribution site once.
 
Vehicles will not be allowed to park, stand or queue on Shore Road or Horseneck Lane at any time. Drivers should not arrive in the area prior to the start time as the park will be closed until the distribution site opens.
 
Due to safety concerns, this test kit distribution site will be unable to accommodate pedestrians or walk-ups.
 
Greenwich residents without access to a vehicle, or unable to drive, should contact the Greenwich Department of Human Services at (203) 622-3800. Greenwich seniors may contact the Commission on Aging at (203) 862-6710, if they are unable to drive to the distribution site.
