How to get free Covid-19 tests delivered before program is suspended


On Friday, the federal government will suspend a program that delivers free at-home Covid-19 tests directly to Americans. However, you still have a chance to order your share of kits if you haven’t already. Each household can order up to 16 rapid antigen tests through Sept. 2. After that, the program will be halted because “Congress hasn’t provided additional funding to replenish the nation’s stockpile of tests,” a message on the program’s website says.”If Congress provides funding, we will expeditiously resume distribution of free tests through covidtests.gov,” a senior Biden administration official told NBC News on Sunday. “Until then, we believe reserving the remaining tests for distribution later this year is the best course.”The federal government launched Covidtests.gov in January during a wave of infections.
