Bring back FREE PCR tests and increase the number of free at-home COVID tests!

Testing is crucial to keeping our friends and family healthy once we've been exposed to COVID. But, as it stands, tests are costly and can be hard to get. The Biden Administration created a program to send 4 free antigen tests to Americans who make the request, but the program was sunsetted on March 8, 2024. We need our government to give Americans the resources and tools necessary to effectively test and mitigate the spread of COVID.

Sign the petition calling on our elected officials to bring back free PCR and antigen testing, and increase the number of free at-home antigen tests available to each household.

Why is this important?

The Federal Health Emergency for COVID expired in May 2023, stripping everyday people from the resources and support they needed to manage community care and health. Now private insurance companies are no longer required to cover the costs of testing, pushing the most reliable form of testing for early detection, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests, out of reach for many. And in March 2024, the government stopped the popular program that gave households access to four free at-home antigen tests per month.

Over the past three years, we were able to use tools like testing, among other interventions, to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and help save lives. And it worked. We were able to drastically reduce infections and deaths. But with new variants emerging, cases are on the rise and hospitalizations are spiking.

We can’t repeat past mistakes and allow COVID to once again spiral out of control. Add your name to call on our government to keep testing FREE and make it even more accessible by not only bringing back the USPS program, but also increasing the number of antigen tests each household can request.
