To address the shortage in available test kits, Senator Dan Stec and district staff delivered more than 1,000 test kits across the 45th Senate District.

“While much of the discourse around coronavirus has become hyper-political, it’s a fact that many people who are in need of a COVID test can’t get access to one,” said Stec. “This lack of access is simply unacceptable. 

“I was pleased my staff and I could partner with local organizations to address this crisis,” he added. “By delivering these tests, I’m optimistic that we can protect vulnerable populations and help our communities stay healthy during this challenging time.”
