FREE AT-HOME COVID-19 TESTS

Every home in the United States is eligible to order 4 free at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen tests.  Orders will usually ship in 7-12 days. These tests give results within 30 minutes (no lab drop-off required). COVID-19 self-tests (also referred to as home tests or over-the-counter tests) are one of many risk-reduction measures, along with vaccination, masking, and physical distancing, that protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19.

Self-tests can be taken at home or anywhere, are easy to use, and produce rapid results. You can use self-tests, regardless of vaccination status, or whether or not you have symptoms. Follow all the manufacturer's instructions for performing the test.
