(Washington, D.C.) --The Biden Administration says it will suspend the distribution of free at-home COVID-19 tests this week.

The suspension will take place Friday because of insufficient congressional funding.

According to a senior administration official, a stockpile of the tests is being depleted, and officials want to have enough in the event of a fall surge.

While the free tests will no longer be available through covid tests dot gov, they will still be distributed in other ways, including at 15-thousand federally supported community sites such as libraries and pharmacies.
