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.

SHIP Data Committee

Our Goal: Develop reliable data indicators and data sources to monitor and track progress on the State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP). 

Our Charge: To develop the performance indicators and targets for the objectives in the Connecticut State Health Improvement Plan.

Statewide data experts ensure that the SHIP will include the most relevant, current, and appropriate data points and sources available and will facilitate cross-sector data sharing and analysis to improve health equity. The SHIP is centered on social drivers of health, which makes data sourcing complex. "Studies estimate that clinical care impacts only 20 percent of county-level variation in health outcomes, while social determinants of health (SDOH) affect as much as 50 percent." (ASPE 2022 report)
