FDA issues authorization for first at-home COVID-19 test
Soon you won’t have to leave your house to take a test for the Coronavirus.
The FDA issued an emergency use authorization for Labcorp’s pixel test, making it the first at-home test for COVID-19.
The sample collection kit comes with a nasal swab which is mailed back to Labcorp lab for testing.
In order to receive the kit, you would have to first complete an online questionnaire which then has to be approved by a doctor.
Healthcare workers and first responders can get the tests first, but the company hopes to make them available to the public in the coming weeks.
