WASHINGTON (AP) – The Biden administration is again making some free COVID-19 tests available to all U.S. households as it unveils its contingency plans for potential coronavirus surges this winter.
After a three-month hiatus, the administration is making four rapid virus tests available per household through the website covidtests.gov starting Thursday.
COVID-19 cases have shown a marked increase after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Further coronavirus case increases are projected from indoor gathering and travel around Christmas and New Year’s.
A White House official says the new tests will come from the national stockpile, which still has reserves.
