Plans to deliver 500 million COVID-19 test kits to homes are being finalized between the White House and U.S. Postal Service, and officials hope by mid-January to start shipping those tests out, The Washington Post reported, citing four people familiar.

A website that will allow people to submit COVID-19 rapid test requests will also be established by the administration, those people told the newspaper.

Separately, negotiations regarding extending the seasonal employees who were hired during the holidays by the Postal Service are happening between its four labor unions and the agency.

One person familiar told The Post that the first contract was awarded on Thursday after proposals had been offered to the government amongst distributors and test manufacturers who intend on providing COVID-19 tests to the initiative.

A request for comment from the Postal Service was not immediately returned to The Post. A representative for the White House declined to comment to the newspaper about the matter.
