The U.S. government will provide four more free COVID-19 tests to each household as winter approaches and potential case surges loom.

To prepare for the holiday season and anticipated COVID-19 case increases, American households can order an additional four free COVID-19 tests online. The service is intended to help families gather safely, especially with vulnerable individuals, and is part of efforts to distribute tests before they expire. Approximately 14.5 million households have received tests this fall, with funding for the program coming from leftover money from a supplemental COVID-19 bill.
