Second Round of Free COVID Tests Can Be Ordered Starting Week of March 7
Earlier this year, the Biden administration stepped up prevention efforts by promising to provide 500 million COVID-19 tests to Americans, with up to four free tests per household.
Data collected through the start of this month shows that more than 90% of the free at-home COVID-19 tests ordered through a federal government website have shipped, with 40% of those tests going to low-income areas.
So far, data from USPS shows that 68 million test kit packages have been shipped accounting for 270 million tests. This means nearly half of the tests remain unclaimed.
The administration has now announced they will provide a second round of free COVID-19 tests. Starting next week, U.S. households can place an order to receive a second round of tests from the USPS COVID Test Kit order page.
