FDA Announces Authorization of First At-Home Coronavirus Test

 A worker wearing personal protective equipment gathers the tests administered from a car as Mend Urgent Care conducts drive-thru testing for COVID-19 at the Westfield Fashion Square on April 13, 2020, in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized the first at-home diagnostic COVID-19 test, according to a Tuesday media release.

The FDA re-issued the emergency use authorization for the Laboratory Corporation of America’s COVID-19 test so people at home can collect their own samples to be tested via LabCorp’s home collection kit, the FDA reported in the news release.
