COVID-19 test-takers in the United States will soon get some help from the government.
They said today that people will be able to get four free COVID-19 tests per home starting Wednesday, Jan. 19. They can order them online or by phone, and they’ll be sent to their home.
The tests can be ordered at COVIDTests.gov. They will be sent to you free of charge in seven to 12 days after you order them, according to a news release.
You can start ordering tests on Jan. 19, but the phone number for ordering them wasn’t right away.
The Biden Administration said Friday that it will buy one billion tests to help with the programme, and half of them will be available on Jan. 19.

Release: “Testing is an important tool to help stop the spread of COVID-19.” CDC and public health experts say that people should use at-home tests if they start to feel sick at least five days after coming in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or if they are indoors with a group of people who are at risk for severe disease or haven’t been vaccinated.
COVIDTests.gov went live on Friday, but you couldn’t order yet.
