The US Postal Service is delivering free COVID-19 tests to residential addresses. Enter your name, address and email at www.usps.com/covidtest to request your free tests. COVID-19 tests will start shipping in late January. USPS will only send one set of 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests to valid residential addresses.
Self-test kits may be available at many of the same pharmacies and groceries that provide pre-scheduled COVID-19 tests.
A negative self-test result means that the test did not detect the virus and you may not have an infection, but it does not rule out infection. Repeating the test within a few days, with at least 24 hours between tests, will increase the confidence that you are not infected.
If you are symptomatic (feel sick), regardless of a negative test, please stay home to avoid spreading any illness to others.
