The White House on Friday launched a call line that Americans can use to order free at-home COVID-19 tests in an effort to increase accessibility.

Starting Friday, individuals who cannot place an order for the COVID-19 tests on the White House website can call 1-800-232-0233 to do so, per The Hill.

The line, which serves those speaking over 150 languages, is open from 8 a.m. to midnight EST, seven days a week.

There will also be a texting feature for hearing impaired callers at 1-888-720-7489.

The White House said the new features are in an effort to make the process of ordering the free tests as easy as possible, and to ensure that those with low literacy or challenges accessing the internet have the opportunity.

The White House also said that the administration is working with national and local organizations that serve communities of color, those with disabilities and other high-risk communities to raise awareness about the free tests and help people order them.

“We want to make sure those communities are, instead of being the afterthought, first in line in so many ways,” Cameron Webb, Biden’s COVID-19 adviser for equity, told NBC News.
