Americans can order free Coronavirus tests on the new government website a day early.
A message was posted on COVIDTests.gov on Tuesday that noted the site is “up and running early so we can test the site before our official launch tomorrow. We have tests for every residential address in the U.S. Please check back tomorrow if you run into any unexpected issues.”
The website had been scheduled to start accepting orders on Wednesday, but an “Order free at-home tests” button was added on Tuesday, which took users to usps.com/covidtests to order four free at-home tests.
The site is currently in a beta phase to allow for troubleshooting, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.
“We can’t guarantee there won’t be a bug or two,” Psaki said, “but the best tech teams across the administration and the Postal Service are working hard to make this a success.”
According to the site, there will only be one free set of four coronavirus tests sent to valid residential addresses.
