Local residents who had direct contact with a presumptively positive coronavirus person lined up today at the Westport Weston Health District, 180 Bayberry Lane, to have nasal swabs taken. About 20 residents underwent the procedure according to Mark A.R. Cooper, District health director. He said the samples are shipped to Quest Diagnostics in California with a response expected in three to five days. The samples collected are being shipped overnight to a private laboratory in California because the State Laboratory is running near or at capacity, he said.
