Question At home antigen COVID-19 tests at times of crisis

Number of days when you could obtain at home antigen COVID-19 tests (free or for fee)?

Here are some sites that might be helpful (in the U.S.):
* https://www.covidtests.gov/
* https://www.anthem.com/ca (after login, 2 free tests per covered individuals)
* https://www.costco.com/

Will the poll count the ones provided by employer? Not sure there what everyone's policy.

Sounds good - indeed, it was almost my son's case. (his employer wanted to give him one, but sadly they ran out of them and couldn't buy any additional - just like everyone else )

My employer (a hospital) - did well for me, but only me. I clicked a few buttons on the intranet site and could get the PCR test next day. I did drive to the City-sponsored test site and felt like I was "back in the USSR"; the line seemed to be nearly a mile long.

I'm also good too. I know my company did some stockpiling and we are obliged to almost test on a daily basis if you go to office HQ or onsite work. British like to queue though.

In France, the Antigen test are availlable in retail, by the 5 pack (provided there are stock) or over the counter in pharmacies, but a bit more expensive (if there is stock).

The answer to this question is it depends. Sometimes the pharmacies have them in stock, and sometimes not. For me, the university has PCR tests available same day with a known exposure or symptoms. For the family, my colleagues have started an at-home test swap. Just ask who has one available and replace it when you are able to buy them.
