The tests are free, and the agency says Amazon will deliver directly to your home, also at no cost.

The tests are made possible through a partnership with The Rockefeller Foundation’s public charity, RF Catalytic Capital, and Project Access to Covid Tests (Project ACT).

Kansans who need additional help ordering the tests can call (866) 534-3463.

The free test offering is limited to one request per household. Additional free testing site-based options can be found here.
