    I had heard this was coming a few weeks ago. Didn't understand the big delay with the latest outbreak. Then in the last week or two all the local stores had sold out of covid tests and everyone was searching for tests that couldn't be found.

    Then it made sense. Career politician let big retail bribe him into delaying the rollout so they wouldn't be stuck with full shelves trying to sell something the feds were giving out for free.

    I know the government can't move fast enough to give out free tests quickly enough anyway, but it does explain why none of the local stores were rushing to restock their shelves.
    Yeah good point. Could be the stores didn’t want to be stuck with worthless inventory.

    but I still think it smells more like the supply was always there and it just got bought up by Biden.

    Curious though - After it takes 12 days to receive the test kits, how many more to get the result of the test?

    I'm going to wild guess another 12 days.

    Another colossally stupid government idea...

    According to what I've read, the at-home tests take about 15 minutes for the results. At home tests are far more prone to giving false negatives than a PCR test if you are asymptomatic, but not prone to false positives.

    Not sure what USPS has to do with it, other than delivering them, but you can order the tests here:

    Correct. I have taken the Abbot Binaxnow test. Very easy, takes a few min to set up and swab then 15 min to read.

    usps is handling distribution so you order from them.

    to be clear, I have nothing against the tests. Just have major issues with a federal government getting more and more involved in all our lives. It’s nonsense for the fed govt to buy up half a billion test kits in a shortage, supposedly to increase availability of tests that are already effectively free at testing sites all over the place—if only they had test kits. It’s just a ploy to increase the size of the govt and get people more reliant on them. Gotta find a way to spend that $1.9 trillion.
