free covid test kits
Get free COVID test kits at COVIDtests.gov
The tests are completely free. There are no shipping costs, and you don’t have to give a credit card or bank account number. You only need to give a name and address. Once you place an order, you’ll get an order confirmation number. If you give your email address, you’ll also get an order confirmation email and delivery updates. Anyone who asks for more information than that is a scammer. So, remember:
  • Go to COVIDtests.gov or call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489) to order your free COVID test kits from the federal government. Online, if you click to order, you’ll be redirected to special.usps.com/testkits.
  • No one will call, text, or email you from the federal government to ask for your information to “help” you order free kits. Only a scammer will contact you, asking for information like your credit card, bank account, or Social Security number. Do not respond. Instead, report it to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.
As of January 20, 2022
KDPH has revised the guidance for isolation and quarantine for the general public in response to the changes presented by CDC last week allowing for shortened isolation and quarantine under certain circumstances. This guidance for shortened isolation or quarantine should not apply to high risk or congregate settings, K-12 schools, or childcare settings.
