Free COVID test kits available through government starting today 

As COVID-19 cases increase in Texas and the U.S., the Biden Administration has announced that consumers will be able to get four free COVID home tests per household, beginning today, through the government-run website:

The Department of Health and Human Services will award $600 million to a dozen domestic COVID-19 test manufacturers to shore up the government’s supply of home tests. The investment will deliver about 200 million new over-the-counter COVID-19 tests.

University community members are encouraged to take advantage of this offer as testing is no longer available on campus.
