FDA Authorizes First COVID-19 Self Test Kit

Americans will soon have access to a single-use, molecular COVID-19 test kit that you can use at home. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization Wednesday for the first diagnostic test kit of its kind that will provide rapid results in about thirty minutes. The test is available by prescription, uses self-collected nasal swab samples, and is authorized for people age 14 and older with COVID-19 symptoms and for people 13 and under when collected by a health care provider.
