Americans will be able to order free at-home COVID-19 tests beginning Jan. 19.
The White House has launched the website covidtests.gov after the Biden Administration pledged to provide 1 billion COVID-19 test kits to American households at no cost.
Every home in the U.S. can order four free tests – there are no shipping costs and you won’t need to enter a credit card number.
“This program will ensure that Americans have at-home, rapid COVID-19 tests available in the weeks and months ahead—in addition to the number of other ways they can get tested,” the White House said in a fact sheet.
Test kits ordered on launch day should begin arriving by the end of the month. Officials expect the kits to ship within 7 – 12 days of ordering.
