Thousand Of Covid Tests Coming To Rhode Island

Over the next week- the state of Rhode Island will be making about 500 thousand covid tests available to cities and towns. About 350 thousand tests will go to the communities.

"Our team is pursuing every possible avenue to secure more at-home rapid tests for Rhode Islanders," said Governor McKee. "I have personally made calls to the management team of several vendors in the industry and our whole of government team is following up on pending orders every day. We are fully committed to ensuring that Rhode Island continues to test more per capita than any other state in the nation. We thank our municipal leaders and community partners for stepping up to get these tests into the hands of Rhode Islanders."

The rest will go to community-based organizations that do not have the funds to buy tests on their own.
