(CTN News) – The government website that offers free COVID tests at home has reopened for a third time to offer free kits to Americans.
Visitors are redirected to a US Postal Service website after clicking on the order link. Free shipping is included with every order of eight rapid antigens Free COVID tests kits. Two packages will be sent, each containing four tests. This is the USPS’s website.
There are Free COVID tests available for every U.S. residential address.
The Biden administration said Tuesday that since the highly transmissible subvariants of Omicron are causing an increase in cases in parts of the country, free and accessible tests will help slow the spread of the virus.
Launched in January, the website offered households up to four test kits per address. A second round of free tests was offered in March. About 350 million free tests have been delivered since then, according to the White House.
