CORONAVIRUS: State offering free test kits again

Ten days after the state launched a website for ordering free COVID-19 rapid-test kits – and quickly ran out – they’re back in stock. Go to to order up to 5 free tests. The state’s announcement says, “Recipients will get those tests delivered at no cost, but only while supplies last. When more supplies become available, the state will open the portal again.” They served 340,000 households the first time around and have enough more for about 120,000 this time around, so if you’re interested, hurry.

    Heads-up!  The expiration date is around June/July 2022 for the kits I received from the federal program and the WA state program.  If I’m fortunate not to have to use these kits within the next 3-4 months, I was thinking I would pass my kits to family/friends with kids and give it to them to use before it expires.

    Thanks, but honestly maybe they will work longer then the expiration date, but who knows? Covid is so new to scientists so how do they actually know?

      You’re probably right, but coming from a lab background where we don’t use expired test kits I wanted to put it out there.  It’s not like the manufacturer advise you use past the expiration date.  It’d be considered off label use. 😀

    I’m chiming in to say I filled out the form the day WSB posted this and received my tests via Amazon on 2/4!

Sorry, comment time is over.
