First At Home COVID-19 Test Approved – What's Up Clarksville

First At Home COVID-19 Test Approved

With the pandemic still being a real issue, the FDA has approved the first at home test kit for COVID-19. The FDA chose Labcorp to work on the at home test. This test will be as accurate as the test that you get at your doctor’s office.

The kit will come with a nasal swab and the person will be able to swab their own nose and send it to labcorp in an insulated package. This at home test will be available with doctors orders in most states. It is expected to cost around $119. It is unknown if insurances will cover it.
