As part of the Plymouth County Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Program, Plymouth County used CARES Act funding to purchase 400,000 at-home rapid antigen COVID-19 self-test kits for distribution throughout the county.
As part of the county-wide distribution effort, the Town of Middleborough has received an allocation of 9,090 at-home rapid antigen COVID-19 self-test kits. The kits have two tests in each box.
Any Middleborough resident will be able to receive the self-test kits on Sunday at the Nichols Middle School. Residents will be limited to two kits per vehicle. The kits will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis while supplies last. Residents will be required to show proof of residency when picking up the self-test kits.
“The Town of Middleborough is pleased to once again host a distribution event for COVID-19 self-test kits as these kits are one of the many risk-reducing measures that can help to protect the community against the spread of COVID-19,” Town Manager Nunes said. “We thank the Plymouth County Commissioners and all who assisted the county in acquiring these tests for our community.”
