The federal government ordered a third round of Covid- 19 test kits to be mailed to any U.S. household.
A Department of Health and Human Services website said Monday that all U.S. households were eligible to order a third round of tests. Each order contains eight rapid antigen tests, the U.S. The Postal Service website says so. Four tests were sent out at a time.
A spokesman for the White House said Monday night that more details were expected to be released Tuesday.
President Joe Biden announced in December a plan to ship free at-home tests to people across the country, and the website with the first tests went live in January.
In March a second round was announced.
The number of new Covid cases has been increasing in recent weeks, although it is not clear if that factored into the latest round of tests.
