UPDATE: Free Covid-19 Test Kits and Reimbursement for Greater Gardner MA
The Federal Government has a website in effect NOW from which Americans can order free COVID-19 tests. This began on January 19th. For the site CLICK HERE. These kits are absolutely free (limited to 4 tests per address) and don’t require any payment upfront.
In addition, private insurers must cover the cost of up to eight at-home Covid-19 tests per month. (This started January 15, 2022.) Consumers pay for the tests up front and get reimbursed by insurance. Previous purchases don’t count and tests must be on approved government list: Rapid Antigen —- Molecular (PCR).
The Biden Administration has also announced that FREE masks will soon be available through your local pharmacy. Ask your pharmacy for details.
Additional suggestion: With many venues requiring proof of vaccination, we suggest the purchase of an inexpensive all-in-one printer (less than $70 from any major retailer) so you can scan your vax card. Back up any documents and keep a file on your phone. Now an even easier suggestion: Get a digital Vax Card through the State of Massachusetts. To visit the portal, CLICK HERE.

Ashby MA Natural Resource Protection Zoning Presentation Online, January 20, 2022 At 7pm
From Ashby website, “On Thursday, January 20, at 7:00 pm the Planning Board invites the Select Board, other Town officials, and the general public to attend a presentation on Natural Resources Protection Zoning (NRPZ). The meeting will be held by Zoom. The proposed NRPZ bylaw seeks to protect the rural landscape and rural character of town. If accepted by Town Meeting, the bylaw would only apply to new subdivisions; it would not change the frontage and acreage requirements on lots created on existing roads. The meeting will include a power point presentation and provide ample time for questions and answers. We look forward to seeing you on January 20.”
