Due to a lack of funding from Congress, the government will cease giving free Covid-19 at-home testing on Friday, a senior Biden administration official announced on Sunday.

Mecklenburg County is still in the “red” or high level for COVID-19 community risk, according to the CDC.

Free at-home Covid-19 tests are still being shipped by the U.S. Postal Service.
