The federal government started taking orders Monday for a third round of Covid-19 test kits to be mailed to any U.S. household.

A Department of Health and Human Services website said Monday that all U.S. households were eligible to order a third round of tests. Each order now contains eight rapid antigen tests, the U.S. Postal Service website says. Previously, four tests were sent out at a time.

A spokesperson for the White House said Monday night that more details were expected to be released Tuesday.
