Free At-Home COVID Tests Available For Order Now

Americans are able to order the free COVID-19 rapid tests a day ahead of the scheduled launch via a form posted by the U.S. Postal Service.

From CBS News:

The White House announced last week that it would publicly launch the site covidtests.gov on Wednesday.

However, some early visitors to the website Tuesday morning were already able to see a button to order their free tests — a limited rollout that appears to have been expanded to more visitors later Tuesday afternoon.

“It will officially launch tomorrow morning. It’s in the beta testing phase right now,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday.

The White House announced the plan for free at-home test kits last month.

Each residential address will be able to order 4 free at-home rapid tests. Shipping is expected to begin by late January.

The White House also plans to launch a phone hotline for those Americans who may lack access to the internet.
