PLYMOUTH – Covid-19 test kits will be made available for town residents Wednesday, May 4 at City Hall.

The Town of Plymouth Human Services Department will be holding a covid-19 test kit distribution in the assembly room of town hall at 80 Main St. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 4. The kits will be available for residents only.

Emergency Management Director Tony Orsini said that the kits, and N95 masks, will be made available due to a recent increase in covid-19 infection rates.

“Over the past couple weeks, the infection rate has gone up to 8%,” he said. “I will be bringing N95 masks with me just in case people want them. I have seen more people wearing them lately.”

Orsini said that the town received the test kits from the state. Kits have been distributed previously at Gosinski Park, Eli Terry Retirement Center, Quail Hollow Village and Cook Willow Health Center.

“My concern is to do whatever I can do to keep the people of our town safe and healthy,” said Orsini.

For more information, call Carrie Tedd, human services case manager at 860-585-4028.
