Free at-home COVID-19 tests coming soon

The White House announced Tuesday that it is working to ship out as many as 500 million at-home COVID-19 test kits to Americans and is creating a government-run website to fulfill free online orders. Details are sparse and no specific delivery schedule was disclosed.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, “We will have more information as it is available including what the website looks like,” adding, “We will make the website available as soon as these tests are available.”
