CALIFORNIA (KION-TV) Governor Gavin Newsom's office said more at-home COVID test kits arrived Monday night at their warehouse.
The kits are set to go to counties office of education. State officials released a plan a few days before Christmas to increase testing in schools.
It is one of the many ways to reduce the spread of the highly contagious omicron variant, where the first case was confirmed in San Francisco just 5 weeks ago.
