A new hotline to request free COVID-19 tests has been established and will launch at 8 a.m. on Jan. 28.

As of that time, households can call 1-800-232-0233 to request up to four free COVID-19 tests. The phone line will offer services in English, Spanish and 150 other languages. Orders can be placed from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. 

These are the same tests that have been available at the www.covidtests.gov website. The tests are completely free and will usually ship in 7-12 days, according to government officials.
