The Biden Administration has reinstated the free mailable Covid-19 tests starting Monday, Sept.25.

This decision comes as more Covid-19 cases have been recorded.

The administration has awarded $600 million across 12 domestic COVID-19 test manufacturers to bolster protection against the virus.

The website has been re-opened for those who are interested in applying for the mailable test.

The federal government will send up to four free rapid tests per household to anyone who requests them.
