Biden making free masks, COVID tests available to all

President Biden says free masks and tests to deal with the current COVID surge are on the horizon for all Americans.

Biden teased a plan to come next week to make high quality masks available to Americans for free, in addition to rolling out a website to order free COVID tests shipped to homes.

“We also have helped make sure high-quality masks are widely available in ample supply affordable prices sold online and in stores. For some Americans the mask is not always affordable or convenient to get, so next week, we’ll announce how we are making high quality masks available to American people, the American people for free.”

His staff will purchase 500 million COVID tests to distribute, doubling the number to 1 billion total.

“We’re on track, we’re on track to roll out a website next week where you can order free tests shipped to your home, and in addition to the 500 million, half a billion tests that are in the process of being acquired to ship to your homes for free, today I’m directing my team to procure an additional 500 million more tests to distribute for free.”

For those who want to go to a testing site, the Administration will continue to add free FEMA testing sites across the nation.

Officials have yet to give an expected date as to when the new batch of tests will be available.

Biden wrapped up his remarks by calling for social media companies and media outlets to handle COVID misinformation being spread.

“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets. Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation on your shows. It has to stop. Covid-19 is one of the most formidable enemies America has ever faced. We’ve got to work together. Not against each other. ”
