You Can Now Order a 3rd Round of Test Kits FREE from COVIDTests.gov
The US Postal Service has updated its free at-home COVID-19 test webpage, indicating that citizens can now place an order for a third round of government-provided rapid tests. Compared to previous rounds, you’ll be sent double the number of tests — eight instead of four.
The procedure is largely the same as it was when the US launched COVIDTests.gov in January; you go to the site, fill in your name and address, and the tests will show up in your mailbox. According to the USPS, though, because you’re getting eight tests this time, they’ll be shipped in two separate packages. You’ll receive a tracking number for each.
The order confirmation page notes that if you skipped any of the rounds (as in, you didn’t order tests in January and/or March), you’ll also be able to place a second order.
