The Biden administration has launched a new web site (covidtests.gov) on which every household can order four free at-home COVID tests.
Testing is an important tool to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 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.
A half-billion tests were made available for order on January 19 and will be mailed directly to American households. Tests will typically ship within 7-12 days of ordering.
