The federal government is again offering free COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to all U.S. households. Each household may order four tests, which will be sent by mail directly to the home at no charge. Orders will begin shipping on November 27.

People who have not yet ordered any tests this fall since the program reopened on September 25 may place two orders, for a total of eight tests.

In addition to this offer, the government will continue to make COVID tests available for uninsured people and underserved communities through existing outreach programs.
