As COVID cases continue to rise, Americans have an opportunity to order another round of free at-home tests.
President Joe Biden announced Tuesday that U.S. households can order eight at-home COVID tests from COVIDTests.gov, which will be mailed to them directly by filling out a simple form.
In January, Biden announced his pledge to make one billion home tests available to citizens free of charge.
“Since then, over 70 million households have visited COVIDTests.gov to order home tests directly in the mail,” the White House announced on Tuesday.
“To date, the government has delivered approximately 350 million free tests to mailboxes and front doors across the country, in U.S. territories and at overseas military bases, with most tests being delivered by the U.S. Postal Service within 48 hours of shipment,” the government continued explanation continued.
Funding for these tests came from the American Rescue Plan.
Anyone who is having trouble accessing the Internet or needs additional ordering assistance can call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489) for assistance in English, Spanish and more than 150 other languages obtain. The telephone line is available daily from 8 a.m. to midnight.
