These days, it seems just about every decision comes with risk: Should I invite friends or family over? Should I dine out? Can I safely return to work or school?
To help people make safer, smarter decisions about their health, the federal government is now offering every American home four free at-home Covid-19 testing kits. It’s a step in the right direction, but many questions remain: Are these tests reliable? What are the chances of a false-negative result? What else can I do to protect my family?
