Thanks for doing the link.bagpuss wrote: ↑Wed Jan 19, 2022 10:13 amThat does seem a little lacking in numbers. How frequently can you order them, or is that a one-off 4 and that's your lot for ever?! Here in the UK, there are 7 in a pack and you can order a pack a day online. Not sure if it's different for ones you collect from a pharmacy or elsewhere as our pharmacy has been short-staffed recently so I've only been getting them online to avoid spending my entire lunchbreak in a queue.monkey wrote: ↑Wed Jan 19, 2022 12:39 amI just ordered my lateral flow tests, but here they're called at home tests, or rapid tests, or something. You get 4 per household*, and I have no idea when we might get them, or when we might be able to get some more.
Get yours here: clicky
*Not sure what you do if you live with more than 4 people and you want to test everyone.
ETA: By the way, your link doesn't work properly - you need "" around the covidtests.gov, I think
ETA2: No, that doesn't work either. You need the full link like this
No idea when we can get another 4 or if we will be able to. If I need more, I guess I have to buy some, not sure if they're covered by insurance or not. It does seem a little lacking and late to me. It took aaaages for the FDA just to approve the things.
The PCR testing has been fine for me so far (results in less than 24 hrs, normally that night), but I've not had to go at the peak of a wave yet.
