Starting on Wednesday, January 19th, 2022, free at-home rapid COVID-19 tests will be available to order through a new government website. Each household can order up to 4 tests, and they will be shipped to your home with no fees. The website and the White House states that “tests will typically ship within 7-12 days of ordering” through the U.S. Postal Service.
The at home test you receive will vary by manufacturer. The federal government has secured more than 420 million tests for distribution through covidtests.gov already, with plans to increase the order to one billion tests in the coming weeks.
