(KGTV) – The federal government is putting the shipping of free at-home COVID-19 tests on hold.
In January, the Biden administration launched the free test kits program on the COVID.gov website.
Under the program, all Americans were able to order four free tests per household during distribution phases in January, March, and May.
However, a message on the COVID.gov site reads: “Ordering through this program will be suspended on Friday, September 2 because Congress hasn’t provided additional funding to replenish the nation’s stockpile of tests.”
According to the White House, 350 million tests had been delivered to households nationwide as of last May.
