COVID Home Tests Available Wednesday

Free at-home COVID-19 tests will be available on Wednesday January 19, 2022

Public health experts and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that Americans use at-home tests if they begin to have symptoms, at least five days after coming in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or are gathering indoors with a group of people who are at risk of severe disease or unvaccinated.

The tests will be mailed directly to American households the initial program will allow 4 free tests to be requested per residential address.

To ensure equity and access for all Americans, there will also be a call line to help those unable to access the website to place orders, and will work with national and local community-based organizations to support the nation’s hardest-hit and highest-risk communities in requesting tests.

The tests, available online starting Wednesday, Jan. 19, can be ordered here.
