Order free COVID tests while supplies last

Four free COVID-19 test kits per household are yours for the ordering through COVIDtests.gov. These tests detect the currently circulating COVID-19 variants. As the tests you currently have might have expired and new ones are in the $25 range, ordering new tests is a sensible next step. (But don’t toss your old tests just yet. The new test kits include instructions on how to check extended expiration dates on older tests beyond what is printed on the box.) Shipping is also free. You’ll never be asked for a credit card or bank account number. You only need to give your name and address. You may also submit your email address to receive delivery updates from the U.S. Postal Service if you prefer. Anyone asking for more information than that is a scammer. Need help placing your order? Call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489).
