On Thursday, Dec. 30, the Ledge Light Health District (LLHD) issued this statement:
As we have seen across the state and country, the demand for COVID testing has exceeded capacity in our region. The lab is still processing samples collected last week and thus is restricting the number of samples it is collecting this week. This has meant that the testing events have been closed much earlier than the published end times and that far fewer people have been able to be tested. This will again be the case in Stonington this afternoon. We understand and share the frustration our community members are experiencing and agree that testing capacity needs to be increased. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and support for the team staffing the testing events, who have no control over the current circumstances.
