FDA approves new at-home coronavirus test


A new at-home test for coronavirus is on the way. The FDA gave the green light for Everlywell to distribute test sample kits.

Health care providers can screen patients then sign off on them receiving the kit. The at-home test will use a nasal sample to test for the virus.

The company says turnaround time for the test takes about 3 to 5 days. They are only available by prescription.
