The good news is Monday, September 25, you can go to www.covid.gov/tests and request four free tests. While I would like to see a much larger program, along with free N95 masks, it’s something at least. One reason the Biden administration is doing this is because they want to keep production lines rolling so test manufacturers don’t go out of business.
That said, they also must realize that the soft denial of reality just isn’t going to work–and now that federal public health officials are admitting that long COVID is a real, quantifiable problem, they have to do something besides encouraging vaccination.
The other thing to note is, if the demand is there, they might do a second round of requests, so stick the site in a bookmark and request your tests
