Did you order your free home Covid tests yet? I just did.

You can order free rapid COVID-19 test kits through the government at the following website www.covidtests.gov.

A total of four test kits can be ordered per household.

Feel free to share this information with your family members, relatives and friends.

14. No, it wouldn't.

They are still limited in supply and I don't want a bunch wasted on the MAGA types that will just burn them or do some other idiotic shit with them.

16. They need to ramp up supply, as promised during the campaign. Waiting until December to invoke

DPA and make more tests was not a great move. And sure, if everyone gets regular tests mailed to their residences, there's some waste. But there's lot more and more regular testing than when you make people jump through hoops to get them.

17. It's not jumping through hoops.

It's going to a damn website.

Or calling a damn number.

Stop trying to criticize anything and everything this administration does.

18. Making people request something is, in fact, a hoop. Maybe not a huge one, but it is.

A quarter of U.S. households don't have home internet, which is a bigger hoop.

I'm interested to hear how the phone line does when it's up.

Stop trying to criticize anything and everything this administration does.
This administration ran on experience and competence. If I see something that can be done better, I'm going to mention it.

20. Your suggestion was not "something that can be done better."

It was your opinion. Just like my opinion of your opinion was that it was unnecessary criticism and promoting wasteful use of an already limited resource.

22. People have had their requests denied already because the system has trouble recognizing

individual apartments in a building. It didn't have to be this way.

promoting wasteful use of an already limited resource.
If people order tests and then end up not using them because they don't want to use up a limited resource, that's just as wasteful. If everyone is sent regular tests without having to request them, some people who might not have otherwise tested are likely to do so.

23. You are just trying to find anything you can to complain about.

There were always going to be hiccups implementing something brand new such as this; they will fix these minor issues -- people have already found a workaround, mind you -- and these people will get their tests on time like everyone else.

10. These are free to everyone, regardless of insurance, because they're from the government.

Four per household, though, so don't use em all in once place.
