COVID Test Kits Via Mail Once Again Accessible in the United States

Commencing today, households can procure an additional four test kits.

As the situation with COVID-19 has mostly stabilized in the United States, certain components of the national COVID response initiative have been scaled back or eliminated. One of these components was the complimentary set of rapid at-home COVID tests that US residents could request via mail. However, with the onset of the holiday season and a rise in cases, authorities have opted for a precautionary approach and reinstated this service.

var pref_connatix_event_title_prefix = ‘ConnatixLarge’;var prefMainPlayer=pref_connatix_event_title_prefix;var pref_connatix_catapultx_id = ‘tdw-main-player’;

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=”https://cd.connatix.com/connatix.playspace.js”,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {
cnxps({
playerId: getUrsCtxStoryPlayer() ,”customParam1″:getUrsPI(),”customParam2″:getUrsSTI(),”customParam3″:”ConnatixMain”,settings: {queryJsTargeting:{apsTargetingKey:getUrsTI().split(‘_’).slice(0,1).join(‘_’).toLowerCase()},advertising: {macros: {“CustomMacro1″:getUrsPI(),”CustomMacro2″:getUrsSTI(),”CustomMacro3″:”ConnatixMain”}}}
}).render(‘307852102563439fa7d193066a4208a5’,connatix_js_ready_callback);
});

Effective today, December 15, households in the US can request a fresh batch of at-home COVID test kits from the official government portal. This service is provided at no cost, and tests ordered today are anticipated to be dispatched by December 19. Government officials are advising individuals to test themselves if they display symptoms of COVID and to contemplate delaying or canceling holiday arrangements and visits if unwell.

“COVID cases are on the rise as people gather for the holidays across America,” conveyed US President Joe Biden in a tweet. “For this reason, every household can now order 4 complimentary COVID tests for delivery right to your doorstep.”

“Given that individuals are congregating indoors for the winter holiday season, we anticipate the virus spread to escalate,” conveyed an unnamed government official to NPR.

In addition to the tests, the federal government is also initiating actions to ensure that vaccines, antigen tests, and the COVID therapy Paxlovid are widely accessible to all citizens throughout the winter period.

“We have dealt with this pandemic for a few years now, and we are geared up for this juncture,” the official remarked.
