You can order free at-home COVID-19 tests at new federal website — What you need to know

A newly launched government website, covidtest.gov, allows every household in the U.S. to order up to four free at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits. The tests will typically be shipped within 7-12 days of ordering, with the first tests arriving at homes as early as late January.

Johnson Countians, along with other Americans, can now start ordering free at-home rapid COVID-19 tests through a new website run by the federal government.

Officially launched Wednesday, the website is part of a renewed effort by the Biden administration to increase access to testing, which has been in high demand as the Omicron variant continues to lead to spikes in new cases throughout the country.
