FDA Approves First At-Home COVID-19 Test

This week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the first prescription at-home COVID-19 test, developed by Lucira Health, for use by people who are at least 14 years old and have COVID-19 symptoms. The test is available for younger people, but a healthcare provider must collect the sample. The EUA approval is available here.
