Americans can get free rapid COVID tests starting Wednesday

Every home in the US will soon have access to four free rapid COVID-19 tests through a new, federally-run website. All Americans will be able to request free rapid COVID-19 tests sent directly to their homes beginning Wednesday, the Biden administration said. The White House announced Friday that starting Jan. 19, each household in the U.S. can order up to four rapid test kits at covidtests.gov.

Along with the 500 million COVID test the administration has ordered, the Biden Administration plans to purchase an additional 500 million in the coming months. Their goal is to administer 1 billion tests in homes. You can order up to 4 at-home test with no shipping costs or need to enter a credit card. In order to receive the tests, you have to go on to the website covidtests.gov, enter your name and address, and the tests will be sent to you in 7-12 days.
