COVID News: Congress failed to provide enough funding to continue US at-home testing kits


NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — The U.S. will end its offer to ship free at-home COVID tests on Friday.

The Biden administration first launched the program in January.

Americans were able to order four free tests per household, then place a second order in March.

The 3rd round of tests became available in May and made every household eligible for more than a dozen covid tests.

The program is ending because Congress hasn’t provided the funding necessary for it to continue.
