The U.S. government has announced that it will be distributing more free COVID-19 tests to households across the country. Starting in November, each household will be eligible to order four tests for free. The tests can be ordered online and will be delivered through the mail [NBC News].

These free tests are part of the government's effort to increase testing availability and accessibility as the holiday season approaches. The aim is to allow people to have easy access to testing so they can make informed decisions about their gatherings and travel plans. By providing tests for free, the government hopes to encourage more individuals to get tested and help identify and control the spread of the virus [Heavy].

To order the free tests, individuals can visit the government's website and provide their contact and shipping information. The tests will be shipped directly to the individual's address. The tests are self-administered with detailed instructions included, and results can be obtained within minutes [Forbes].

The availability of these free tests is significant as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country, especially with the emergence of the new Omicron variant. The tests can provide individuals with a quick way to determine their infection status and take appropriate measures to protect themselves and others [The Verge].

The initiative has been widely covered by news outlets, including NBC News, Heavy.com, The Verge, Forbes, USA Today, WCVB, Newsmax, ABC7 Chicago, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Boston Herald, CNN, Daily Mail, Time, Medical Xpress, The Boston Globe, Dayton Daily News, The Seattle Times, Star Tribune, MyNorthwest, San Diego Union-Tribune, Reuters, and The Washington Times. The news has been welcomed by the public as a helpful resource to ensure safe gatherings during the holiday season and to mitigate the spread of the virus.
