President Biden today announced he is investing $1 billion dollars to quadruple the national supply of at-home COVID-19 tests by December.
“We will have a 200 million test supply by December,” said Jeff Zients, COVID-19 coordinator, during a White House press briefing. “At the same time we are increasing the supply of at-home tests, we are expanding access to free testing. Every American, no matter their zip code, can access free testing.”
Zients said the Biden administration was also focused on expanding the number of free, community-based testing sites to 30,000 across the country, including 20,000 sites at pharmacies.
