DHS: Wisconsin households eligible to order more free Covid-19 rapid test kits
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced Thursday that all Wisconsin households are eligible for free at-home rapid Covid tests.
Starting Thursday, Wisconsinites may place an order every month for one free test kit that contains five rapid antigen Covid-19 tests on the Say Yes! COVID Test website.
“With the holidays coming up, we want to give Wisconsinites the tools they need to safely celebrate with their loved ones,” said DHS Secretary-designee Karen Timberlake. “These free self-tests are delivered right to the door, allowing people to take a COVID-19 test at home and make decisions that will keep those around them safe.”
The Say Yes! COVID Test program is funded in part through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funds.
