Baker secures contract for 26M rapid antigen tests O n Tuesday, the Baker-Polito Administration announced an order that was placed with iHealth to supply the state with 26 million rapid antigen tests over the next three months. The tests will be prioritized to support K-12 schools and childcare settings. The agreement allows for shipments of tests to arrive on a rolling basis in the Commonwealth, but the Administration warns that the timing and shipment amounts will vary depending on international shipping and production variables. The Administration also released a public health advisory this week to advise all residents on when to seek tests for COVID-19.

The new isolation protocols do not require a COVID-19 test to exit isolation after having COVID-19. This general rule also applies to childcare and K-12. The new quarantine protocols recommend, but do not require, that all exposed individuals get a test five days after exposure.

DPH recommends individuals that have COVID-19 symptoms and test negative with a rapid antigen test should isolate and either repeat an antigen test or get a PCR test in 24-48 hours if they continue to exhibit symptoms.
