The State of Wyoming is deciding how to spend left-over Federal Covid Relief Funds. Now White House is providing Antigen Rapid Test kits for free.

Four tests per household, and more are available with Private Insurance.

For those of us on Medicare/Medicaid, it would be a great help if the State would also offer a limited number of these same tests. And with those Federal Funds, it would help Private Insurers as well.

Last year, Wyoming offered free test kits from Vault Health and as this pandemic continues, another round of test kits from the State would help everyone. The Funds are already there.
