"Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order a 3rd round of free at-home tests," the government's COVID.gov website stated Monday. "Order yours today."

This time, orders will include eight rapid antigen COVID-19 tests, which is double the amount provided in previous rounds. They'll come in two separate packages, shipped for free, each with their own tracking numbers.
