‘We rocked it.’ How USPS pulled off delivering 380 million COVID-19 tests
The White House earlier this month announced that households can now order a third round of free COVID-19 rapid tests on COVIDTest.gov.
Households can now receive eight new tests, double what households could order in the previous two rounds. USPS has delivered at least 380 million free tests through the program so far.
President Joe Biden took note of this accomplishment in April, when he signed Postal Service Reform Act, adding that the agency “stepped up” to meet a daunting task.
“Impressive turnaround for an unprecedented task, and it’s continuing truly heroic service that they provided throughout this pandemic,” Biden said.
