Consumer alert: Attorney General James asks consumers to report price gouging of at-home COVID-19 testing kits


New York Attorney General Letitia James last week issued a consumer alert to New Yorkers concerning potential price gouging of over-the-counter coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) testing products for at-home use, as well as other in-demand essential products. 

The Dec. 21 alert came in light of a surge of COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant, which has resulted in the rise of New Yorkers seeking to use at-home testing kits before gathering with friends and loved ones for the holidays.
