Americans can order 8 more free, at-home rapid COVID-19 tests

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Americans can order eight more free, at-home rapid COVID-19 antigen tests.

This brings the total number of free test kits offered to 16 per household after families had other opportunities to order free tests in January and March.

During that January rollout, nearly half of the 500 million free COVID-19 tests made available to Americans were left unclaimed as of the end of February.

To date, the Biden administration says it has delivered approximately 350 million free tests by mail.

Households that already received tests during the first two rounds of orders are eligible to receive another shipment of four tests.

Go to to order tests or call 1-800-232-0233 between 8 a.m. and midnight any day of the week.
