Read Time:1 Minute, 23 Second

The Biden administration announced Tuesday that all Americans can now receive a third round of free COVID-19 tests by mail.

Here’s how to order a free COVID-19 test:

Visit COVIDTests.gov or by phone 1-800-232-0233.

Each family is eligible to take up to eight additional tests. The latest round of tests on COVID-19 is the third set of kits proposed by the government.

The Biden administration said nearly 70 million households had requested tests for COVID-19 since January, and nearly 350 million had been sent. The Biden administration has said it is ready to send up to 500 million tests.

Officials said tests on COVID-19 are usually delivered within 48 hours of order.

All tests distributed under the program are FDA-approved rapid tests for antigen at home, officials said.

Here’s when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using tests:

  • If you start having symptoms of COVID⁠19, such as fever, sore throat, runny nose or loss of taste or smell
  • At least 5 days after you have been in close contact with someone from COVID⁠19
  • If you are going to get together with a group of people, especially those who are at risk of getting serious diseases or may not be aware of their COVID⁠19 vaccines
