The tests are part of an interstate testing compact deal and are being funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation. They will be distributed to critical facilities such as nursing homes, correctional facilities, and schools.
The tests, which can return a result in 15 to 20 minutes, will be distributed first to nursing homes, assisted living centers, juvenile detention facilities and correctional facilities. The state also plans to send rapid tests to college campuses, particularly to dormitories, Hogan said.
