Last week, the White House announced covidtests.gov, a site with the purpose of supplying free rapid antigen COVID-19 tests to every U.S. household. The new site is now live and ready to take orders, as well as provide additional resources and information for those in need of testing. Here are a handful of things to know about the site, the tests, and the other resources available.
First and foremost, every home in the U.S. is eligible for 2 orders of 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests. For convenience, if you are interested in ordering immediately, you can use the link below to go directly to the order form and skip all the extra information.
Additionally, on the site, you’ll find information on other locations you can purchase additional at-home tests, how you can be reimbursed by your insurance for up to 8 at-home tests per month, and 20,000 Community-Based Testing Sites that will provide free testing.
Lastly, you can find answers to many of the frequently asked questions regarding testing and preparedness. Including What comes with the tests, when is recommended to use them, what to do if you get a positive or negative test, and much more. There will also be a phone number provided at a later date, so those without access to computers or high-speed internet can place orders.
