Blumenthal Urges Wider COVID Testing

Senator Richard Blumenthal is planning to be tested for COVID-19 this afternoon at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, which is offering drive-through testing without a physician’s order. Blumenthal’s urging residents to do the same as the state begins its Phase three reopening today. He’s also demanding that all senators and staff participating in the confirmation hearing of Judge Amy Coney Barrett be tested for the virus. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin hearings Monday on the president's Supreme Court nominee.
