Beginning Nov. 20, 2023, every U.S. household can again place an order to receive four more free COVID-19 rapid tests delivered to their home by visiting COVIDTests.gov. If you did not order tests this fall, you may place two orders for a total of eight tests. Additionally, before you discard any “expired” test kits you have, please check here to see if the expiration dates of your COVID-19 tests have been extended.

OEMS - EMS Licensure/Certification/Exams


The Department of Public Health is aware of “phishing” telephone calls and emails making their way through Connecticut, targeting license holders with the State of Connecticut. The phone calls and emails appear to be from the state (though they are not). The phone calls appear to be from (860) 509-7603 and indicate there is an issue with a license. The email asks credential holders to follow a link to a web page that looks like the state’s eLicense system. There they are asked to validate their license by entering personal information, such as name, address, social security number and date of birth.
 
Please note that in the event the Department is taking any action against a license, the licensee will be contacted by letter sent via US Mail.  The Department would never contact you over the telephone and ask you to provide any personal identifying information such as SSN.

To protect your personal information, please do not provide any information without ensuring that you are at the legitimate site, which is https://elicense.ct.gov/ and requires a login to update personal information.
 

Answers to most licensing and examination questions can be found on this page.  If you are unable to find an answer to your EMS licensing, certification or examination question, please email OEMS licensing or call our office staff at (860) 509-7975 for assistance.
