Federal Government Relaunches COVIDtests.gov Website

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response, has announced the relaunch of the website COVIDtests.gov. Starting Sept. 25, every household can again place an order to receive four more free COVID-19 rapid tests delivered directly to their home. Before throwing out “expired” tests: Check to see if your COVID-19 tests' expiration dates have been extended.

In addition to the federal government inviting U.S. households to order four free COVID-19 tests, there are numerous other options to get tested for free, such as free community-based testing sites, including pharmacies, across the country. ASPR is also distributing free at-home tests to schools, nursing homes, community health centers, rural health clinics, food banks and other community locations to ensure communities have widespread access to tests. To learn more, people are encouraged to contact a HRSA health center, Test to Treat site or ICATT location near them to learn how to access low- or no-cost COVID-19 tests provided by the federal government.
