I hope that you had a wonderful holiday with the people in your household. As we wind down the year and look towards 2021, I have an important request for you: please get tested for COVID-19 this week.
Everyone who can get tested this week should do so. We saw spikes in our cases in the weeks following several other holidays this year, but a major testing push this week can help us significantly limit the spread of COVID-19. The more people who get tested over the next few days, the more we’ll know about how the virus spread over the holiday, and the better we’ll be able to target our response.
You can sign up for a free test at portal.ri.gov
. Please be sure to tell your friends and family that they can get tested for free, too. It doesn’t matter if you have symptoms or not — we need you to get tested to know for sure.
