Free Rapid Covid tests - available to order from Wed. on -

As a Public Service This article is free to access.

Americans will be able to order free rapid coronavirus tests Wednesday on new federal website

A federal website where Americans can order free coronavirus rapid tests will be launched Wednesday and allow each household to order up to four tests, senior administration officials said Friday.

The website, called covidtests.gov, will require that users provide their names and addresses to receive the tests. The government purchased 500 million rapid tests that will be available to every household, and will limit to four the number of tests sent to each address, the senior officials said during a briefing with reporters.

May as well be anal swabs…

From same article you referenced:

“ While experts have said rapid tests are a critical tool, both in the omicron surge and going forward, early research issued in late December by the Food and Drug Administration and produced by the National Institutes of Health said the tests “do detect the omicron variant but may have reduced sensitivity.” The real-world implications are not clear and still under investigation, but some rapid tests appear to be less reliable with the omicron variant.”

I was sick a couple of weeks ago.

Never got tested. Just got some cold medicine and stayed home.

I refuse to take part in the drama.

Could “specimen collection” be an issue?

Are there “false positives?”
Are there “false negatives?”

What is the predictive value of a positive test in:
A. A symptomatic person
B. An asymptomatic person

Are we going to train everyone regarding the above and keep competency folders on ourselves as far as our lab skills go?

Can will bill ourselves?
Do we need CPT code?
ICD10 codes?

Before the test, do I need to ask myself if I smoke?
Should I ask myself about my gender and preferred pronouns?
Do I need to identify myself with 2 unique identifiers?
Can I ask myself for a picture ID?

What sort of patient satisfaction survey tool do I need to email myself after the test?

Didn’t they say it will take 12 days to arrive?

Omicron has already peaked in a lot of place. Would have been great to have this ready to go last month when potato announced this.

Is there a return envelope?

Will this work as their Federal Registry Data Base?

Each test kit comes with a mid-term and Presidential election ballot.

Had alpha (tested) and omicron (untested but kiddo tested positive at pediatrician). We are done. I’m not getting jabbed or swabbed for colds moving forward. I will parent like every parent should parent. If my children have fever, sore throat, chills, fatigue, I will let stay home. Otherwise, they are carrying their arse to school.

This clown world shite has to be stopped by people with common sense.

Rapid "Common-Cold" Test Strips. (Wish I'd thought of this scam in my basement.)

Who wants to make a bet that the website is going to crash within 10 minutes?

Be careful sticking anything from the government in your nose, these may be pre-infected with the next Fauci strain.
