I live in FloriDUH and just checked this out (thank you for the link, rescue-chick). Not surprisingly, no tests available in MY area, the state that let COVID tests expire.

I will keep checking but Death Santis would rather all of the populace die than do anything. We are overrun with snowbirds and everyone else who came last year and stayed. Sarasota has become a nightmare.

In the UK we can order one free box of lateral flow tests per day to be delivered to our home.

also, starting January 15,if you have insurance your insurance is required to pay for up to 8 home covid tests per month. if you are charged by the retailer (either in store or online) save your receipt and submit to your insurer for reimbursement

…per person, rescue.
So if there are two people in the house, it’s 16. Three, it’s 24 and so on.

I guess that’s fine if you’re a woman. But then you have to run the drug store anyway to change the type of pad you get.

I don't know r22, I have never had a test and as far as I know, I haven't had covid. but, people are spending money on the tests and I like most of you so, I share.

Yeah as much as I criticise this country, it's good that we have had easy 'free' access to at home lateral flow tests for many months at this point. It's great that the US is catching up.
I am still working from home but people who go into the office are encouraged to test themselves several times a week to make sure they are not spreading COVID. I also tend to test before meeting up with family or having people stay over, though having recently had COVID I'm probably immune for a while now.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||January 19, 2022 10:43 AM|
R22 can you explain why you think this is a waste of money? Surely it's much better for people to be testing themselves frequently at home than having tests administered by healthcare professionals who could be doing more useful things? Surely it's much better people test themselves and isolate if needed than roaming around spreading COVID everywhere? Work it out, what is better financially? Funding for tests which reduce the spread of COVID, reduce the risk of infecting vulnerable people who then need medical care, reduce the need for staff to conduct tests that are easy to do at home, just makes financial sense. If you can't work that out, you must be pretty thick.

I ordered mine the first day you could order them and haven't received a thing.
You would think the democrats would do everything they can to fire Louis Dejoy and get to work fixing the Post Office and all the damage caused by dejoy. But you would be wrong. They're not concerned about anything

Same here R36 and the way my local post office is run, I don’t expect to receive them.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they were sold off already.

R38 here. Eating my words as they delivered today.

I ordered the first day, and they just came this Monday, Feb 14. You will get an email on the day they are to be delivered, I received two emails one saying they would be delivered Monday and one saying they would be delivered Thursday, but they did indeed come on Monday. I am hoping I never need them.

R49, They already said on the news that people do not quarantine if positive or only isolate a couple days, so it is useless. Get the vax and fucking move on.
