January 19 begins the federal rollout of free at-home COVID-19 test requests for delivery. Please forward this link: https://www.covidtests.gov/ as widely as possible.
The federal website does state that shipping could take 7-12 days so everyone should order the tests early in case they need them when they believe they are experiencing symptoms.
Their website may experience issues with so many requests in the early activation of this launch so please be patient.
Our local resource request program continues to support local organizations with PPE. Unfortunately, we have not had a shipment of test kits for several weeks to our local distribution warehouse and we are not currently anticipating any deliveries. President Biden purchased 500 million test kits to launch the COVID test initiative. This act including the Omicron surge has caused some supply chain issues with acquiring more test kits.
Please be safe and follow the CDC guidance to mitigate COVID-19 exposure.
