COVID-19: Where can I get free COVID-19 at home tests?

Posted by on Monday, November 13, 2023 in .

The CDC announced every U.S. household can order 4 free COVID-19 self-tests.

Self-tests (also called at-home tests and over-the-counter tests) are one of several tools that protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19. Self-tests can be taken at home or anywhere, are easy to use, and produce rapid results.

You can place an order:

  • Online at
  • By calling 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489)
  • By calling or emailing the Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) at 1-888-677-1199 or (for people with disabilities)

Additional tests can be purchased online or in pharmacies and retail stores. Visit FDA’s website for a list of authorized tests. If you’re not able to obtain a self-test when you need it, you might also visit a community testing site, or contact a healthcare provider for more options.
