The Facts

The White House announced on Tuesday that US households could now begin ordering their third round of free Covid-19 tests.
A fact sheet from the White House stated, “As the highly transmissible subvariants of Omicron drive a rise in cases in parts of the country, free and accessible tests will help slow the spread of the virus.”
US households can now order eight more free tests, bringing the total number made available to the public since the start of the program to 16.
White House Covid-19 response coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, tweeted, “Going to a large gathering? Use rapid tests to not be the person who brings COVID to the party.”
Covid-19 testing is believed by experts to be a critical tool, helping to mitigate the spread of the virus.
