Sandwich Among Cape Towns Not Getting At-Home COVID Tests

SANDWICH – The Town of Sandwich recently announced that it will not be among the 100 communities receiving COVID-19 test kits from the state government.

Governor Charlie Baker had recently announced plans to distribute 2.1 million iHealth Labs over-the-counter at-home rapid antigen tests for residents across the state, as part of a larger nationwide effort by the Biden Administration to distribute 500 million COVID-19 tests as cases rise relating to the easily transmissible Omicron variant.

According to local officials, the town did not meet the low-income criteria necessary to qualify for the funding.

Nearby towns receiving at-home COVID tests includes Yarmouth and Eastham.
