DETROIT – Many people who ordered free at-home COVID tests from the federal government are seeing delivery delays
The website says orders will ship in 7 to 12 days but for some people it has already been about 20 days and the tests haven’t shipped.
Millions signed up to get the free tests in January and many are still waiting. Todd Ulmer is still waiting for his tests to arrive and he considers himself at high risk for COVID.
He ordered his tests on the day the website went live, Jan. 19, like millions of other Americans. He’s still waiting for his tests to arrive in his mailbox.
Why is it taking so long? Some believe it might be tied to postal delays. The White House says things are moving forward and millions of tests have already been delivered.
