BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Saratoga County has distributed 10,000 at-home COVID-19 tests to municipalities throughout the county. The tests were received from New York State on January 4.

“As the omicron variant continues to push case numbers to rise, testing will be an important tool in helping us mitigate the spread of COVID-19. By distributing these testing kits to municipalities for use by individuals, we will help ensure our residents throughout the county, have easy access to these self-test kits,” said Theodore T. Kusnierz, Jr., Town of Moreau Supervisor and Saratoga County Board of Supervisors Chair.

The county said each municipality has developed a distribution plan to get tests to their residents. Residents are encouraged to check their town or city websites or social media for details and updates for the distribution of testing kits.
