COVID-19 Home Tests

Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023

CDC launched COVID-19 Testing Locator, which will allow consumers to search for free COVID-19 testing sites near them. The locator is part of the CDC Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program, which provides access to COVID-19 testing, focusing on communities at a greater risk of being impacted by the pandemic, people who do not have health insurance, and surge testing in state and local jurisdictions.


Updated Sept. 8, 2022

Ordering through this program was suspended on Friday, September 2 because Congress hasn't provided additional funding to replenish the nation's stockpile of tests.  

If you need a COVID-⁠19 test, has resources.
