Starting on January 19th, 2022, 500 million at-home COVID-19 tests are available for free for Americans.
The thing is, it isn’t a fast process, so if you need to test now this won’t help you since the tests won’t start arriving until the end of January.
How Do You Get A Free At-Home COVID Test?
As of January 19th, you can order your free COVID-19 tests online and that is linked at the end of this article.
The orders of the at-home COVID tests are limited to up to 4 tests per household.
For those that do not have internet access to order online, they will be setting up a phone number to call to place your order, however, that is not available at this time.
There are no shipping costs added and you do not need a credit card to get your at-home test kits sent.
How Long Does It Take To Get The Free At-Home COVID Tests Delivered?
Shipping for the at-home tests isn’t quick, I mean the mail has been super slow lately as well.
But you can expect that your test will ship within 7-12 days of placing your order, so yea… it’s gonna be a minute before you actually get it.
When Is At-Home COVID Testing Needed?
If you are having any of the COVID symptoms you may want to test to be sure.
If you’ve knowingly been exposed to someone that has tested positive, you will want to test about 5 days after known exposure.
