COVID-19 Tests and N95 Masks: Where to get them?
Starting today, you can order COVID-19 antigen test kits through covidtests.gov.
To order them, follow the instructions on the website. They should ship in 7 to 10 days. I recommend ordering these even if you don’t need them now. You never know when you might get exposed to COVID-19. So, it is great to have these if you can’t get a PCR quickly after exposure. Harvard has a good explanation of the differences between PCR and antigen tests and when to test yourself after being exposed. I recommend reading it.
For N95 Masks, it is essential to have a good fit. If you go 16:28 in the video from Aaron Collins, an aerosol scientist, you can see how to do a fit test for your N95 mask. I buy my N95 masks here. You can also buy some good 3M N95s at Home Depot.
Aaron also has a spreadsheet of all the masks he has tests and the links of where the masks came from here. If you have any questions, leave a comment below.
