Ordered my 4 test kits yesterday. Today was supposed to be the first day of ordering, but they changed it to Tuesday. Very simple ordering process, and no charge.

I ordered mine last night. It was easy. Just name, email address, and address.
It did say that multiple orders per household is not possible.

My partner ordered ours, but we had gone out 12/24 to The Hope Depot and bought a pack of N-95's.

I am really trying not to go anywhere, regardless.

glad to hear they are finally going to give out masks. personally I'd much rather get some better prevention than a test to test if I've already got the damned disease.

And I'm irked they're not mailing the masks. So I don't have to go out and risk infection to get a test; but I do have to risk infection to get a method of prevention.  ??? ::)


I am really trying not to go anywhere, regardless.
Luckily I live in a small town in semi-rural South Carolina (with a looow positivity rate) .... and I'm a hermit. While I learned theze mad introvert skills when I had aids for a decade, I stay at home now all the time because my husband and I own our home (just celebrated the start of year  #4) and I LOooOVE my yard - and what's not to love? the dog loves it, I mow and rake it, it's got a pool and deck and firepit...and lots of flowerbeds I'm still working on.

Right now the only place I go out to is the newly opened planet fitness - where usually there are only about 6 people, including my husband (who meets up with me after he gets off work), so there's a lot of social distancing LOL. I make my hubby go to the grocery store afterwards without me- as well he should since I cook every night.  ;)

I never thought about Home Depot,  But I see them on the website. A pack of 20 N-95, made by 3M for $23.67, or 1.18 per mask. and they are in stock at the home depot we shop at.

They're good. The straps are tight, and they will be the thing that breaks when you have throw one away...

Just in case anyone was wondering what the difference is between a K-95 and a KN-95 face mask,( And I was one of those).... Here's a video:
