Milford Drive-Thru Distribution of COVID-19 At-Home Rapid Test Kits

The State of Connecticut has provided an additional allotment of COVID-19 test kits to Milford. The City will distribute this extremely limited number of test kits on Thursday, January 6, 2022 at Silver Sands State Park from 5:00-8:00pm (or until the supply is exhausted).

 In order to help curb the spread of COVID-19, this allocation is intended for Milford residents who may be experiencing symptoms, had a recent exposure to an individual who is positive for COVID-19, and/or who have or will be attending larger gatherings. Individuals should bring proof of residency such as an ID and/or Milford beach sticker.  Each household will receive one kit (contains two tests) which will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. 

LOCATION:

Silver Sands State Park

1 Silver Sands Parkway

Milford, CT 06460

All vehicles must enter through Silver Sands Parkway.

It is anticipated that additional tests will continue to be allocated to the City and announcements will be made upon receipt from the State of Connecticut. 

The Milford Health Department is working with area groups and organizations to ensure that vulnerable populations and homebound residents have access to test kits. 

Per the CDC recommendations, if your self-test yields a positive result, please stay home or isolate and wear a mask.  There is no need to obtain a follow up PCR test.  Given the highly infectious nature of the Omicron variant and the increase in cases locally, it is most important to get vaccinated if you haven’t been vaccinated, get a booster if you are eligible, wear a mask both in public spaces and when interacting in close contact with individuals outside of your household, and stay home if you are sick. 

For further guidance on COVID-19 protocols and recommendations, please visit the Milford Health Department website: https://www.ci.milford.ct.us/health-department-0 or call 203-783-3285.
