In acknowledging the federal announcement, Governor David Ige said, “We encourage everyone to sign up because we all know that testing plays an important role in the fight against COVID-19.”

During an afternoon press briefing, Gov. Ige said, “Having at-home test kits allows us to identify those who may be infected as soon as possible; and I think most importantly, it will allow us to keep our schools running and in person, and allow us to really pursue economic revitalization moving forward.”
