The FDA has announced they have approved the first COVID-19 test that can be used at home.

They shared information about the product, saying, “Today, we issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the first #COVID19 diagnostic test that allows for self-collection & testing at home and provides test results in 30 minutes or less. The test kit for home use is available by prescription only.”

In the statement on their website, they add, “In 30 minutes or less, the results can be read directly from the test unit’s light-up display that shows whether a person is positive or negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”

The product will be a Lucira COVID-19 All-In-One Test Kit test. Patients 14 years and older who are suspected of having coronavirus can use the self-collected nasal swab samples.

They add that the test will also be used in point-of-care settings like doctor’s offices, hospitals, emergency rooms, or urgent care centers.
