It wasn't too long ago that COVID tests were like gold. They were hard to find, the lines were hours long, and the demand was out of control. And many were at a loss for what to do. Then the government was able to send each household four free tests they could take at home.

A second found of free at home tests has been approved to go out starting this week.

Many of you ordered the first round, but for the ones that didn't, no worries. With this second round you have the option of getting eight tests! That's right, if you didn't order the first round you can still do that AND still receive the second round of four as well. Just put in two separate orders.

When the first round went out at the beginning of the year, I think people were panicking to get them, in case of another surge. I guess I was wrong because at the end of February, there were almost half of the 500 million tests made available, still unclaimed and waiting to be shipped out.

The website is now open for ordering. You can order your tests here and get all the other information you may be looking for. I would say, may as well order them, just in case. Yes numbers are lower, is that because we are not reporting the at home test results? Could be. Or is it because we are actually not seeing as many cases?

Either way, stay safe...and do whatever your heart desires when it comes to ordering these at home tests.
