More free rapid COVID tests coming to Vermont

Thousands of Vermonters will soon be receiving free COVID rapid tests.

The state made 175,000 free rapid tests available for order online Wednesday morning, and ran out by the afternoon.

The governor’s office says people who ordered tests will receive them in the coming weeks.

The Associated Press reports 75,000 more test kits are expected to become available soon in Vermont, but no exact timeline has been announced.
