On Tuesday, Jan. 4, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the Lyme Emergency Management Department will distribute free at-home COVID self-tests and N-95 face masks to Lyme residents at the Hamburg Fire Station, while supplies last. The distribution will be made on a drive-by only basis.
The Town has received a small number of the test kits and an adequate supply of the face masks:
- A box of 20 masks will be given to each car and supplies are expected to last throughout the two-hour distribution.
- The at-home test kits will be given out one per car while supplies last on a first-come, first-served basis. The Town has only received approximately 50 of the at-home test kits for distribution to residents (with each kit containing two tests). We expect the supply to run out quickly once distribution starts. At present, the state is unable to project when additional supplies of test kits may become available. If additional kits become available, the Town will schedule another distribution.
Drivers will be required to show proof of residency in Lyme.
