Important COVID-19 Update: Order Free At-Home COVID Tests

Every home in the U.S. can order 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests. The tests are completely free. All you need is your name and home address to place an order. No ID or credit card is needed.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you take an at-home test:

  • If you begin having COVID-⁠19 symptoms like fever, sore throat, runny nose, or loss of taste or smell, or
  • At least 5 days after you come into close contact with someone with COVID-⁠19, or
  • When you’re going to gather with a group of people, especially those who are at risk of severe disease or may not be up to date on their COVID-⁠19 vaccines.

For more on when to use at-home tests, see the latest CDC self-testing guidance. If you test positive, you can follow the CDC’s guidelines on what to do next to keep your family and neighbors safe.

Order your tests now so you have them when you need them.
