From Winthrop to West Springfield, more than a hundred cities and towns in Massachusetts are getting rapid COVID-19 tests to distribute to residents for free, under a state plan announced Monday by Gov. Charlie Baker.

According to the Baker administration, the 102 communities were selected because they had the highest percentage of families below the poverty line.

And state officials will begin divvying up and delivering the 2.1 million iHealth Labs rapid tests this week. As long as they prioritize low-income families, local officials can distribute the tests however they like, from targeted outreach to those most in need to public distribution sites.
